Making crewing transparent, fair & compliant

We are inspired by seafarers. It is they who move 90% of global trade, working tirelessly away from their homes and families. We want to help them secure the opportunities they deserve in a simple and fair way.

Our story

From Manila, Philippines to Odessa Ukraine, and from Piraeus, Greece to Hamburg, Germany - we want to support the maritime industry.


We want to support the people who work around the clock in the middle of the ocean away from their families for months, have better work conditions & development prospects.

We want to support their employers meet compliance requirements & run a tight ship.


We bring greater transparency & efficiency by utilising data & technology in the space of maritime crewing.
