We are pleased and honoured to have received the prestigious “Ship Owner of the Year 2021” award at the The Sailors Home and Mission to Seafarers Annual Maritime Charity Dinner on 20th October 2022.
This prestigious maritime award, now in its 8th year, is based on an anonymous survey conducted by The Sailors Home and Mission to Seafarers on Hong Kong Owned/Managed/Flagged ships in order to see what the seafarers themselves thought about those who employed them and how they were treated. There are many awards that the Shipping Industry delivers each year; however, this is the only award by the seafarers to their employers.
The Survey was in the form of an online survey and more than 11,000 responses were received, including from the Chellship Fleet, making this the largest seafarers survey in the world. The objective of the survey was to see “human responses to human reality”.
It is very heartening that our ship-staff feel well-valued serving in Chellship and have appreciated the efforts put in by the Company towards their welfare, particularly during the COVID times. The Company has taken a number of measures to alleviate the hardships faced due to travel and quarantine restrictions, where the Company placed the repatriation of our staff over and above Commercial considerations.
The award was received on behalf of the Company by Capt Rajiv Tetarbe. We are humbled that this prestigious award was in effect given to the Company by its Seafaring staff. It is indeed a testimony to the untiring efforts of all the personnel at Chellship, Mumbai, Hong Kong and on board!
Heartiest Congratulations and a BIG THANK YOU to our valued ship staff for voting Chellship as the “Best Ship Owner of the Year 2021” !!
