BIMCO (the Baltic & International Maritime Council)/ICS manpower report indicates, according to the current supply and demand, there are a shortage of 16,500 officers and an oversupply of 119,000 ratings.
Without continuing the efforts to recruit and train more seafarers, a shortage in supply of officers would emerge and could significantly result in downfall of maritime industries, ship owners and ship managers. It could also cause freight rates to plunge and lead to a rationalization of shipping capacity worldwide.
As the shortage of officers in increased, the competition will be fierce for trained, experienced and competent workers. Moreover, maritime companies will fall over themselves to attract potential applicant to fill the vital role to run a ship efficiently.
The lack of available trained staff in maritime industry also caused retired officers who pursued onshore job to come back to work at sea in order to fill the gap of demands.
