The Seatrade Standard
Making a difference
The human factor in shipping is the decisive factor for success. Closely related to our vessels performance, which is always in the focus of our attention. Every employee of Seatrade is committed to contribute to our goal, providing first class quality shipmanagement service, ensuring availability and quality against competitive costs. We wish to further improve on safety and the way we interact with each other. We feel there is a lot to be gained in unity, communication between ship and shore, and safe operation of our ships. That is why we renewed the “Seatrade Standard”.
Commitment to our Seatrade Standard
As an aid for performance improvement, the “Seatrade Standard” offers a clear framework to work within.
- Commit to safety conscious and environmental friendly practices.
- Communicate openly and effectively within a culture of tolerance both onboard as well as ashore.
- Care for a clean ship, a friendly crew and a good condition of the cargo, well representing the company.
- Convince by performance, take pride in your job and be responsible, both as an individual and as a team.
- Combine a costs conscious attitude with high commercial awareness.
- Continue improvement and development of employees and vessels.
Mark Jansen, Managing Director of Seatrade Groningen: "For Seatrade’s shipmanagement it is important that each vessel and her crew reflect the Standard image, it is important for all staff, both onboard and ashore. This is why the management has organized a series of workshops in The Netherlands, Russia and the Philippines for all shore staff and onboard management.”
Our organization: different nationalities, different tasks, but having one shared mental model
