Crew Agency

Crew on demand
Danica’s network of offices covers the major seafarer hubs across Eastern Europe and gives you access to more than 70,000 officers.

Danica provides quality crew to meet today’s and tomorrow’s maritime needs. We are well-positioned to tap into this huge pool of well-educated and experienced officers in Ukraine, Russia and the Baltic States which industry experts recognise as an increasingly important source of crew.

Ukraine has been identified as the most important future source of crew by the latest ICS/Bimco Seafarer Workforce Report, which is trusted by ship owners, charterers, and governments and is an essential management tool for those tasked with developing crewing and training strategies to meet future needs. The report also ranks Ukraine as currently the third most important global supplier of crew, with Russia rated fifth highest.

Which puts us ahead of the curve! We founded Danica Crewing Services when we recognised that many shipowners and managers were struggling to find a reliable manning agency which could ensure the quality of crew needed, knowing what an abundance of competent crew were available in Eastern Europe.

At Danica we know that our clients rely on first-rate seafarers for their maritime operations . Being a leading crewing services provider, we are totally committed to meeting your requirements, and we are totally focused on client satisfaction.

For your convenience, we have offices in Ukraine, Russia and Latvia – all the key hubs for Eastern European seafarers – and all of our offices work together to fulfil our clients’ need for top-level crew. By using Danica you will benefit from having a single access point to a wealth of capable seafarers.

Our mission is to find the best and most talented seafarers for your vessels within the salary range offered. We carefully select seafarers who match your company’s requirements. Our screening is holistic and, in addition to technical skills and knowledge, we also screen for leadership and behaviour. You can read more about our strict screening process here.

In addition to the manning agency services we also provide a number of value-adding services such as crew planning, logistics, travel management, accounting and payroll services, as well as offering a range of training opportunities.
