TCC – The Caring Company

TCC Christmas Party

The Group’s commitment to safety and the pursuit of excellence is made possible by a strong, loyal, competent and willing workforce both on board and on shore. TCC is fondly named as “The Caring Company” by its employees and boasts a high retention.

The management employs comprehensive guidelines in the careful nurturing and grooming of personnel within the “Governing Documents: SMS+ Manning & Training System Handbook.” The manning selection and deployment policies are based on competence, compatibility and attitude, and are neutral to the individual’s faith, gender, color or origin.

  • Management is cognizant of its obligations under MLC 2006 and far exceeds the mandate
