Bulker officer salaries soar

Bulker officer salaries soar

Singapore: Seatrade Asia Week editor Marcus Hand headed to Manila this week and the latest issue of the regional e-newspaper has a strong crewing focus. On the front page there's news that officer wages are spiralling for large bulkers. Previously the officer shortage had seen salaries for tanker masters and senior officers shoot through the roof. With the enormous influx of new bulker tonnage this year, this wage escalation has spread to capesizes.
Inside the newspaper there are exclusive reports on the topsy turvy state of Indian iron ore exports, as well as an update from Sovcomflot on a groundbreaking aframax voyage along the Northern Sea Route of the Arctic.
Given that it is late August and people are gradually heading back to work
Seatrade Asia Week took the opportunity this week to provide readers with an in depth guide to the best maritime conferences held in the region in the coming three months.
Seatrade Asia Week comes out 50 times a year and is priced at just $300 a year. Moreover, we are running a special offer right now. Subscribe by September 10 and receive an additional two months free. To subscribe click here.  [27/08/10]
