Seafarer wage cost benchmarking

The Seafarer Employers’ Association is the source for reliable wage cost benchmarking data for employers of seafarers. Crew cost data is analysed by nationality, rank and vessel type.

We collate, analyse and report daily crew-cost data - this includes leave pay and guaranteed overtime, rotation, and enables members to identify the cost of crewing a vessel.

Reports show market highs and lows, and P10 –P90 percentiles for comparison against each member’s data.

The following sectors are reported:

  • Bulk carrier
  • Container
  • General cargo
  • Car carrier
  • Ferry/RoRo/Ropax
  • Chemical tanker
  • Product tanker
  • LNG
  • LPG
  • Cruise

All data is reported in anonymous aggregated format in order to preserve member confidentiality.
