Crossworld Marine Services Celebrates 17 years in the Industry

Crossworld Marine Services marked its 17th year anniversary with offices in the Philippines, Jakarta, Ukraine, and Athens holding simultaneous celebrations on March 1, 2021.

The company was formed in 1991 in Japan and Denmark and had a rebirth in 2004. After almost two decades in the industry, Crossworld remains one of the most trusted manning agencies in the Philippines and overseas. The company has deployed millions of Filipino, Ukrainian, Indonesian and other nationality seafarers across the globe to satisfied principals in different countries.

That’s despite the global economy challenges in the past 17 years whereby Crossworld has shown it is capable of adapting to all sorts of client needs and industry challenges. This includes the current Covid-19 pandemic which has crippled crewing significantly on a global scale but for which Crossworld has worked closely and relentlessly with principals and seafarers alike to successfully ensure a swift recovery.

“We are very proud of Crossworld’s success in Manila but also in other cities around the shipping world. Together, Always being ahead of the competition is not only our branding slogan; it’s our company culture. It comes down to us nurturing a true partnership with our seafarers, principals and employees alike to seize opportunities and overcome obstacles together. We are very much looking forward to more fruitful years ahead along with our partners and always striving for greater heights together,” said Simos Varias, Crossworld group CEO.

Crossworld has over the years nabbed several citations along the way. These include being named as ‘The Best Performing Manning Agent Award’ by the Philippine Overseas Employment Agency (POEA) in 2009 and in 2013. But its ultimate reward is the loyalty of its principals, seafarers and employees over decades.

Now, Crossworld caters to 350 vessels of various types, with a very satisfied clientele of more than 30 ship management companies, and over 4,000 crews onboard and is still growing strong.
