Torm is now a major Filipino player with local ships’ officers

Since April 2012, Torm has run its own manning office in its own brand name in the capital of the Philippines, Manila, following several years of co-operation with Thome Ship Management. No other Danish shipping firm employ so many Filipino ship officers of tankers.

Torm holds great expectations toward the shipping company’s new manning set-up in Manila, the capital of the Philippines, which is now run under its own ownership and brand. Today, Torm is, in terms of the number of Filipino ship officers of tanker ships, the second largest operator in the Philippines.

“Today, no other Danish shipowner has so many officers and senior officers as we do so we have become a major player in the Filipino manning-market. We employ about 500 Filipino officers who account for 40 percent of our Filipino mariners,” says Tommy Olofsen, Vice President of Corporate Marine HR.
