Much of the success of SAL Heavy Lift is down to the competence, experience and dedication of the vessels' crews. The recruitment of crew is managed in close cooperation between SAL Heavy Lift’s crewing department in Hamburg and the SAL Heavy Lift affiliate, “Oste Crewing”, in Manila.
SAL Heavy Lift is committed to offering opportunities for career advancement and longevity in employment. In addition SAL Heavy Lift provides comprehensive family and social services. All vessels' Masters have a strong background in heavy lift shipping, supervising the crew where some are with SAL Heavy Lift in their second generation.
