Manning is expensive – are you getting value for your money?

Danica is a dedicated crew services provider. We assist first-class shipping companies around the world to recruit and retain the best maritime talent in the most cost-efficient manner possible.

Danica is not a mega-ship manager. We have very flat organisation and all clients have direct access to our senior management and can contact us at any time.

We are fully transparent. We are not involved in any technical management or have hidden agendas to sell you additional services you don’t really need. Nor do we use our own travel agencies, port agents or training centres. Instead, we cooperate with a wide range of high-quality vendors and, in each case, we select the best solution ensuring the best results in the most cost-effective way.

With a network of recruitment and manning offices in all important seafaring hubs, we can supply any crew nationality combination you desire, or you can benefit from having the best multinational talent onboard your vessels.

Every year thousands of seafarers apply for a job through Danica. We have very exact intelligence of market wage levels for each nationality. Based on our insights in the crewing markets, we design balanced wage scales ensuring you are able to recruit and retain quality crew members in the most cost-effective way. You don’t have to be a market leader on wages to get the talent you need.

After wages, the second highest cost element in a crew budget is travel expenses. We manage travel costs very carefully by tendering all air journeys at three independent travel agencies to ensure competition and the lowest air fares. We do the same with port agency services.

The Danica way is to be there alongside you. We don’t want to be seen as your crewing manager but as your extended external crewing department. We give each of our clients a single contact point by assigning you an experienced crewing manager who works closely with your organisation to deliver the best crew in the most cost-efficient way. That way you only have to contact one person and we do the rest.

And we have nothing to hide – we offer full transparency. Our clients can browse online in real time all planning, transactions, costs and budget compliance and drill down to every single detail.
