Each Shipboard Management Team, consisting of two Masters and two Chief Engineers, is responsible for the superintendence of the vessel.
This unique method of ship operation stimulates the officers’ interest and involvement in their own vessel, ensures optimal maintenance and high technical standards and, in the long run, lowers overall costs.
The Masters and Chief Engineers work together, while on board as well as on leave, and are responsible for budgets, spares and stores, and repairs and maintenance.
They are also involved in the management of quality, safety and regulatory issues as well as the recruitment of officers and ratings.
The shore organization provides technical support, crewing and personnel co-ordination, commercial management, accounting and harmonization of the operation of the vessels.
This structure requires a continuous collaboration between the officers that are on board the ship and those who are on leave.
The system brings a flat organization with quick decisions, cost effectiveness, and a more stimulating and motivating work environment for the officers with a possibility to influence the company.
Laurin Maritime holds inclusive meetings three times a year in Gothenburg and Manila, where officers and ratings meet to discuss security, new regulations, the ship budget, and life onboard.
