Solving the crew-change challenge is proving difficult under the current circumstances, warns crewing specialist Danica.
Following a survey conducted by Danica, a Hamburg-based crewing specialist, the company’s managing director Henrik Jensen has stated that: “Our survey shows that 80 per cent of the seafarers who do not have internet access today would move jobs in order to get it. This is a huge warning to those shipping companies who do not offer crew internet access onboard their vessels.”
