TEAM Trans-Global has evolved since 1977
into 6 departments to address the needs of its principals. Accounting
handles seamen allotments, disbursements while maintaining policies
set by the principal. It also undergoes regular audits required
by principals and Trans-Global. Operation takes care of seaman
documents processing and deployment plus travel arrangements for
contract assignment, overseas training attendance. ShipGroups
are assigned specific principals dedicated to focus on Principal
fleet administration requirements ranging from manpower scheduling,
seafarer career development, promotability, safety, fleet stewardship
reports and statistics. Training looks into seaman training both
mandatory by government or in house principal. Administration
is responsible for crewmail, shipboard recreation, welfare and
benefit administration including annual fleet get together and
Christmas parties. Lastly, the Executive group acts as lead coordinator
with its principals for policy directives, liaising with local
and foreign industry sectors.
In 1980, the Capt. Inocencio P. Estaniel
Training Center (CIPETC) was established as a separate division
of Trans-Global primarily to conduct specialized training programs
for the needs of Esso who provided the equipment. This center
performs Pre-Departure Orientation Seminar (PDOS), Safety Course
and other required familiarization/ orientation briefing of its
principals. In the past, it handled industry upgrading courses,
but with the advent of STCW95, these courses became part of the
academic curricula of maritime schools instead we rendered: service
as maritime training coordinators for our clients.
Also, a Crisis Action Team (CAT) was established
in 1990 to address anticipated critical situations which affect
seafarer families during times of emergency like calamities. It
also looks into a seaman families and informs seafarers onboard
of any development to ensure that the communication flows smoothly
between TMAI and its principals, the vessels and seafarer's families.
Country Situationer Report (CSR) are also provided as required.
TEAMWORK and proper coordination is the underlying reason for
the success of the CAT.
