Inland Crew Solutions


What We Do

Bring Expertise at the Disposal of Clients

ICS brings a wide range of navigation and crew management expertise to inland shipping companies at cost effective rates. Our clients no longer have to budget bigger spending on operational knowhow from different professional service providers, but easily get all these under one roof.

Put Emphasis on Skills & Attitude for Selection

We put equal emphasis on skills and attitude in our crew because we want our clients to benefit from the best of what our market has to offer for inland navigation. Our recruiters are trained to verify crew records and reputation before forwarding a candidate’s name to the client.

Maintain Industry Recognized Quality Standards

As specialist recruitment agency, we seek to adopt simplified and streamlined internal processes to improve efficiency, productivity and work rate while reducing errors. Adopting such quality management parameters is meant to help retain existing clients and improve crew attributes.

Build a Pool of Better Trained Inland Navigators

ICS aims to build a small specialist pool of around 600 well-trained, experienced sailors who can be deployed exclusively to our clients’ vessels and work on a regular rotation of sailing missions every year. This will help reduce the cost of crew turnover an improve work relationships.

Giving Clients Freedom
to Re-Deploy Resources
Where Needed

Inland Crew Solutions has a hands-on approach to crew recruitment, and clients always benefit from personalized attention and top priority in our day-to-day activities. We work as a team to address the issues that are critical for vessel operations, and our clients can expect professionalism and dedication from all our staff and crew, at all times. Our staff is knowledgeable, respectful and works hard to address the complaints and concerns of clients.

We are prompt and thorough in our communications and demonstrate true leadership in helping clients resolve their most critical challenges. We seek to earn the trust and confidence of our clients and crew demonstrating integrity and commitment in all that we do.

Our goal is achieving the highest level of customer satisfaction through excellence in client service.


Why Choose Us


In our business, when most of the crew changes are last minute decisions, selection plays a vital role in smooth sailing. Knowing what kind of selection best suits a client is vital to the crew member’s job performance. Our selection methods focus on maximum efficiency in minimum time.


We provide trouble-free customer experience in recruitment and onboarding of crew, and every recruitment decision is adapted to fit the client’s needs. We cover a fairly large population living in the Lower Daube region for our recruitment, giving us a large pool of qualified workers.


ICS invests time and effort to establish closer professional and personal relationship with our crew, and work diligently to make this possible. We are continuously involved in maritime labour relations for our sailers and our clients, earning us a well-deserved reputation for amicable dispute resolution.


We have a growing database of qualified and experienced inland navigation crew which makes it possible for us to respond to crew requests faster and more efficiently, and reduces time to process crew applications. For clients, this makes it possible for timely and informed personnel decisions.


ICS provides payroll, administrative, tax and legal support to crew and clients provides from a single-window disbursal process, while ensuring both employer and employee are fully informed of their legal and financial obligations. We assist client wage and tax payments in an efficient manner.
