The rapidly changing nature of the maritime industry generates demands for different types of surveys and reports to enable marine managers to plan and maximise the use of their resources.
We have developed an extensive library of marine personnel related information and are often able to provide information based on that resource alone. Other requirements need a bespoke solution to identify, gather and present specific information needed for that client’s requirements.
PAL also provides a Secretariat service for a number
of specialist maritime groups. This includes preparation and facilitation of meetings and management of surveys and information exchange.
Shipping companies need to understand how employment practices are changing in the maritime industry to make sure they are maintaining their position and are able to attract the quality and quantity of shore based and seagoing crew they need.
The value to Companies in participating in PAL marine salary surveys covers a number of aspects. It enables Companies to assess their position, both nationally and internationally, on how their employment policies and marine wage scales compare to other shipping operators and to determine if they are at their preferred level within the market. The information helps them to be as knowledgeable, as many seafarers are, in relation to seafarer wage rates and conditions on offer. It also allows them to determine, over a period of time, possible trends. The information also enables like for like comparisons to be made with other shipping operators i.e. the monthly berth cost of wages, vacation and leave.
