Dear Principals,

Firstly, we thank you indeed for your interest in getting to know about and exploring the opportunity of employing Vietnamese crew for your vessels. Given poor conditions of the shipping market at present and the fact that shipping companies worldwide are striving for cost cutting measures, the idea of employing Vietnamese has more than ever become a hot topic. Why is that? That is because using Vietnamese crew can help shipping companies cut running costs of their fleet by a wide margin through reducing much of the manning costs without compromising on crew quality. It is likely that this idea is too new to you to decide, but some big shipping companies in Japan, South Korea and Taiwan have been employing Vietnamese crew for nearly two decades and they have taken good advantages of Vietnamese crew to make their competitiveness edge. In view of this approach, we would like to recommend East Star Shipping Co., Ltd as a potential and trustworthy partner in supplying good Vietnamese crew for your vessels if you are interested in this cooperation idea.

All vessel owners and Principals require competent and efficient crew who shall be tasked with specific functions on board their vessels. On this premise, we pride ourselves in serving our Principals to the highest degree of efficiency and professionalism plus the Vietnamese mentality of adaptability and flexibility to the latest trends in worldwide seafaring.

Above all, our company, East Star Shipping Co., Ltd. always adheres to the requirements imposed by the governmental agencies and instrumentalities, assuring that our seafarers meet all the necessary requirements as well as legal documents, knowledge, experience, and expertise. Moreover, we are in strict compliance with Standards for Training, Certification and Watchkeeping (STCW) conventions, more particularly STCW-95 set out by the International Maritime Organization (IMO). All these necessities are scrutinized by our experienced staff who prepare all the documentations prior to the seafarer's deployment.

To all of you, Principals and Employers, we look forward to a very fruitful, lasting, and harmonious business relationship, and rest assured that our services shall always be at your disposal.
