In a recent development, the Anglo-Eastern Group has revealed that they are adding 1000 Indian seafarers to their pool of workers. The Hong Kong-based ship management company has a strong presence in India.
Anglo-Eastern Ship Management India, the subsidiary of Anglo-Eastern Group, has offices in Kolkata, Mumbai, Chennai, New Delini, Chandigarh, Lucknow and Kochi.
As of now, Anglo Eastern has nearly 21000 Indian seafarers in its pool which will be increased by at least 1000 by the end of this calendar year, as per Managing Director Maneesh Pradhan. Worldwide they have 27000 seafarers in their pool.
Pradhan credits their training facility with having a monopoly on Indian seafarers as it helps to maintain a 100% share in that. According to him, since most Indian seafarers have done their courses in English and are adept in the language, they enjoy an advantage over seafarers from other nationalities.
India is a key supplier of the maritime workforce in the global shipping industry. The company regularly holds pre- and post-sea training in India at their maritime training facility in the country.
Anglo Eastern’s CEO, Bjorn Hojgaard, reiterated this when he said that India is a crucial country for the company’s growth. Currently, they have 100 container ships, 200 tankers and 300 bulk carriers listed on the website. They cater to over 600 ships through third-party ship management.
They are the largest ship manager in the world based on their pool of seafarers and the no. of ships.
