KNOWLEDGE AND BUYING
POWER FOR THE MARINE
AND SHIPPING SECTOR

Managing travel for the marine and shipping industry is a specialist job. Transporting crew personnel on time and on budget is vital for a vessel’s profitability. By offering unparalleled value, service and innovative technology, we work in partnership with our clients to meet the various business challenges that they face.

Travel expenditure is typically a significant controllable cost but optimising this spend globally, while ensuring process efficiency and duty of care, is always a challenge. By understanding the many variables faced by ship owners and ship management companies, crewing and manning agents, we enable seamless crew changes and logistics for on-signers and off-signers.

Whether for individual seafarers, officers or regular crew rotations, we will navigate complex routings and itineraries to provide expert guidance to manage ever-changing crew travel requirements.

By ensuring strict attention to detail, we will provide everything from exclusive negotiated marine fares to visas and other documentation needed to avoid costly delays.

Delivered locally but managed from regional hubs around the world, our own crew of travel specialists are there to manage every component of the travel process 24/7, 365 days a year. Service is backed up by the latest technology available, so whether it is handling a last-minute schedule change, controlling compliance, to traveller tracking or post-trip analysis, all of our tools are integrated into one global system.

Simplifying the complex

Our expertise and integrated technology put traveller productivity, safety and wellbeing at the heart of everything we do.

Wings goData® is an intuitive, self-service and mobile-enabled business intelligence tool that helps you measure and improve the performance of your travel programme including highlighting traveller behaviour that could affect cost and safety – key elements of crew travel management.

Our Travel Risk Management solutions are scalable and flexible to deliver the appropriate service depending on your needs. We can help you and your travellers to avoid risk as well as supporting their safety in the event of any travel disruption, natural catastrophe or incident, all from one central and reliable source.
