PTC’s crewing operation is anchored on an account management system which provides customized attention to the requirements of each Principal. Maritime professionals are dedicated to a specific account, allowing them to fully grasp the culture and philosophies of a single Principal with whom they remain throughout their career with PTC. An Integrated Human Resource Development Model is at the core of PTC’s crew management program, creating a partnership of equal interest between PTC and its Principals. This model allows for the advancement of a seafarer’s career – from recruitment to employment, through training and professional development and ultimately, retention.

PTC has taken its successful crew management formula to new opportunities across the Asian region through PTC Centina. Its first venture beyond Philippine shores is Indonesia, a country rich in maritime tradition.

As part of PTC’s strategic expansion of its global footprint, the company entered into a formidable partnership by acquiring a substantial interest in the Aboitiz-Jebsen Group. This has resulted in a combined pool of 45,000 maritime professionals with 25,000 on board over 1,200 vessels worldwide at any one time.
