At Ionia, we believe that the human element is the main contributing factor towards a Company’s sustainable growth and success. The employment of competent seagoing personnel is vital for the safe and efficient operation of the vessels. To this end, officers and ratings are selected with great care and in line with STCW 95 requirements for certification.

The reputation of a ship management company rests on the quality of the marine officers and crew employed. The Company’s training, hiring, manning, terms of employment, personnel record keeping and reporting procedures are consistent with STCW and applicable maritime regulations to ensure the employment of competent qualified personnel.

In cooperation with our business associates in Manila, Philippines (Ionia Maritime Services Corp.), we go beyond established Standards for Training Certification and Watch keeping for Seafarers (STCW) and train our seafarers to the higher Company standards.

At Ionia, we emphasize teamwork and strive to make our staff, ashore and afloat, develop a common and well entrenched understanding of Company vision and policy. To this end, we constantly strive to equip our people with skills to help fulfill our growth objectives in the future.

“At Ionia, we emphasize teamwork.”
