VIKING Shipowner Agreement
In the world of global maritime, safety is first. But to stay competitive in ever more challenging markets, we know that successful operators must continuously maximise efficiencies and reduce cost without compromising performance - even when it comes to safety.
With a Shipowner Agreement, you can trust VIKING to streamline and simplify all aspects of onboard safety and compliance.
We replace complexity with flexibility and reduce administration and operational risk - freeing up resources to boost your core business.
Your safety is safe with us
Depending on several factors, such as sailing patterns, flag state, fleet size, composition and more, shipowners’ safety related needs and preferences tend to vary extensively.
For this reason, we offer several customizable options to ensure that you always have safe and compliant life-saving equipment on board - and that it can be sourced and serviced on a way that suits your operations and preferences.
See our different safety sourcing concepts below.
