    International Shipping Needs 42,500 More Officers By 2019, Drewry Says

    The international shipping industry will require an additional 42,500 officers by the end of 2019 to cope with the expected growth in the main cargo carrying fleet, according to the latest Manning report published by global shipping consultancy Drewry.

    This is equivalent to a staggering 7% growth over the five year period, but the persistent shortage of officer crew is receding, Drewry says.

    Current officer supply is in the order of 615,000 and a nominal shortfall of approximately 15,000 officers, which is expected to remain the case until 2019. In the meantime, this shortfall is made up by officers working longer shift patterns, Drewry says.

    “There is still a shortage of officers but the gap between demand and supply has narrowed as the recent growth in fleet size is coming to an end”, said Malcolm Jupe, Lead Analyst at Drewry.

    Drewry notes that although crew compensation packages tend to follow the International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF) standard terms, officer earnings are more market driven – West Europe is however the principle exception to the rule.

    In the current market, most ship owners simply cannot afford significant increases in wage rises and any increases which have been seen between 2014 and 2015 have been modest in nature.

    It is also the case that ships are getting bigger and larger ships provide more shipping capacity for the same number of vessels, which is also helping to ease some of the pressure on manning.

    “Manning is normally the single largest cost head in ship operations. Keeping these costs under control remains very important to all ship owners, especially when trading conditions are weak, as is the case in some of the key shipping freight markets – such as dry bulk carriers”, added Jupe.

    On Thursday, the international maritime community will be celebrating the International Maritime Organization’s Day of the Seafarer 2015, recognizing the world’s seafarers and the contributions they make to the global economy and society. This year’s theme is focussed on maritime training and drawing young people towards a career at sea.

    Carrying a rifle to shoot potential hijackers would be an interesting career if I were younger. Nowadays I prefer to be at home as much as possible.

    good luck competing with the 3rd worlders -- i deal with chem tankers all the time. generally the officers nor the crew are from 1st world countries

    a pinoy deckhand/tankerman makes 1200 US per month. this is for 6 months away from home on the ship, 6 hours on, 6 hours off....so 12 hours per day 7 days a week

    Agreed. The number of ships going to early scrap (before their 30 year lifespan is over) is unprecedented. Supposedly the breaker yards in Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and China have a waiting list.

    Bipartisan Bill Seeks to Boost Maritime Training at Community and Technical Colleges

    May 3, 2017 by gCaptain

    U.S. lawmakers from two key maritime states have introduced bipartisan legislation seeking to advance the capabilities of two-year community and technical colleges to assist the federal government and industry in securing the talent pipeline for domestic maritime industry jobs.

    The bill, known as the Domestic Maritime Centers of Excellence Act of 2017, was introduced Tuesday by U.S. Representatives Gene Green (D-TX) and Rob Wittman (R-VA) with the support of fellow lawmakers in California and Texas.

    Under the Act, the Secretary of Transporation would be authorized to designate community and technical colleges meeting certain requirements as centers of excellence for the purpose of domestic maritime workforce training and education. The designation would open the door for technical assistance, access to surplus federal equipment and assets, and federal funding.

    “In our district, we have a surplus of maritime jobs and not enough people with the skills and training to fill them,” said Rep. Green, whose district is home to the Port of Houston. “The industry is continuing to invest and grow along the Port of Houston, and we want to make sure that our constituents have the opportunity to take these high skilled jobs. This bipartisan legislation will help bridge the gap.”

    Congressman Wittman, representing Virginia’s first congressional district, stressed the importance of a strong maritime workforce to the economy and national security.

    “A well-trained, skilled maritime workforce is critical for our nation’s economy and national security,” said Rep. Wittman. “Advancing the capabilities of community and technical colleges – such as Rappahannock and Tidewater Community College – to assist the federal government and industry in securing the talent pipeline for the domestic maritime industry will mean more shipbuilders and repairmen to sustain and expand trade and grow our Navy’s Fleet.”

    “There are over 56,000 direct maritime related jobs at the Port of Houston alone,” said Rep. Ted Poe (R-TX). “As the workforce grows, students must be ready to enter the maritime industry with job ready skills. This legislation simply gives local community and technical colleges the resources to effectively prepare their students. As Co-Chairman of the PORTS Caucus, I recognize that this legislation takes an important step forward in ensuring future workforce growth for the Port of Houston and ports across the nation.”

    “I am pleased to introduce the Domestic Maritime Centers of Excellence Act with my colleagues to bolster our maritime industry, raise up our community and technical colleges, and empower students to find well-paying jobs in this critical sector of the American economy,” said Rep. Alan Lowenthal (D-CA). “Strengthening this workforce is essential to maintaining our nation’s goods movement system and vital to our national defense.”

    “The Port of Virginia is handling record cargo volumes, and to meet the growth the port is investing in its terminals to increase the annual capacity by 1 million container units by 2020,” said Virginia Port Authority CEO and Executive Director John Reinhart. “The port and its related industry will need a skilled, educated and expanding workforce to complement this growth. This legislation is important because it would make additional resources available to programs like the Southeast Maritime and Transportation Center at Tidewater Community College to meet the demands of Virginia’s rapidly expanding maritime industry.”

    “The recruitment and development of shipyard workers is critical to the future of the U.S. shipbuilding and repair industry,” said Matthew Paxton, President of the Shipbuilders Council of America (SCA). “Empowering MARAD to recruit, train and develop the next generation of workers will provide a stable workforce and ensure there is sufficient talent to build our commercial and military ships for decades to come.”

    From the link in Searcher’s first post

    Pioneering Spirit Sets World Lifting Record

    At 382 meters long and 124 meters wide, the purpose-built vessel is the largest offshore construction ship ever built. The bow features a large slot and lifting beams that allow the vessel to straddle a platform and remove entire topsides weighing up to 48,000 tonnes in a single lift.


    This is incredible, the precision and compensation involved just blows me away.

    I thought they were all going to be autonomous ships........ Is this just a scam to sell schooling for jobs that won't exist when they get there?
