Manpower Pooling

Together with our clients/principals, we will find the most appropriate solution to their needs and requirements which includes building crew pool, recruitment, deployment and maintenance of crew.


Recruitment and selection of seafarers are being performed by well-experienced merchant marine officers. Written examinations, oral interviews, neuro-psychological and medical examinations and background checking are the processes that applicant must undergo before they can join.


OCMS will ensure that a crew is fully documented before he/she is deployed to its vessel assignment. OCMS will take charge of all documentation prior the embarkation of crew, i.e., contract processing, visa and licensing requirements, travel arrangements, etc.


OCMS has various mechanisms which the client/principal can adopt in order to maintain qualified crew in the pool, i.e.:
- Loyalty & Incentive Bonus
- Training
- Promotion
- Morale & Welfare Assistance

Medical Assistance

The Transnational Medical Diagnostic Center (TMDC) is an in-house medical clinic with complete medical equipment that conducts the pre-employment medical examinations of seafarers prior deployment. The clinic maintains a staff of 35 people within all medical fields and is accredited by a select group of countries and Japan and UK P&I Clubs. Our records show over the last 5 years average sickness rates of less than one percent of the deployed crews.

Travel Arrangement

Our in-house travel company (ADTOURS) provides crew arrangement for joining and returning crew at a very reasonable cost. We can provide last minute bookings at weekends and during holiday seasons.

Ship Management

Complete and integrated shipmanagement services are also available for selected owners and operators that wish to source-out complete and partial shipmanagement needs including insurances.
