Leveraging a wide network of over 20 management offices, crewing agencies and training centres, Columbia’s business strategy is GLOCAL: services developed and provided globally, but serving our clients’ needs in their local environment.
Our Global INFRASTRUCTURE
With offices in Cyprus, Germany, Singapore, China and Greece, and representatives in Japan and Korea, CSM has steadily established a network in strategic locations. This enables us to service our partners within similar time zones as well as provide a global high level support to our fleet and crew while adapting the strategies locally.
Our people are our greatest asset and responsibility. We have established our own crewing agencies in areas with a significant tradition and impact in the seafarer’s recruitment process; this local presence not only assures Columbia of highly qualified and loyal crew, but also enables greater emphasis on training and career development. Columbia is proud to have a long and well-established history with “owned” crewing agencies across 3 continents.
Seafarers play a vital role in operating our fleet and we place great emphasis on their training and skills development. We recognise the importance of educating our own seafarers and in addition to mandatory training, have also developed client and company specific crew training programmes in our own training state-of-the-art facilities.
