In addition to a good level of qualification; communication, team spirit and loyalty of the crew play an essential part in every type of ship operation.

We carry out job interviews, draw up relief and rotation schedules and check the crew costs. The organisation of individual career planning, high crew satisfaction and a comprehensive range of training courses are the focus of ongoing development of our crews. USC Crew GmbH provides customised personnel solutions for various kinds of job specifications while meeting the highest quality standards.
