Crew Change is an essential procedure in the maritime industry, allowing seafarers to transition on and off ships based on predetermined schedules set by shipping companies. It primarily happens when a seafarer’s contract comes to an end. Within this process, there are two key terms to understand:

  • On Signer: This refers to the crew members joining a ship to begin their contracted duties.
  • Off Signer: This pertains to the crew members completing their contract and disembarking from the ship, making way for the next batch of seafarers.

Therefore, it’s crucial for ship crew providers to collaborate with local shipping agencies in the respective Crew Change locations. This partnership guarantees smooth transitions and efficient processes for all involved parties.
