Crew Change

At Niels Winther Maritime we are handling a great number of crew changes every day.

We are working closely together with several trusted taxi and bus companies who will ensure that your crew are getting safely to and from the vessels. These companies are accustomed to international sea farers and will meet the passengers timely in the airport and wait while your crew is making a stop at the local border control stations if needed.

In case your crew need shore based accommodation in connection with crew changes then you can benefit from the agreements we have in place with a variety of hotels around Denmark.

For crew changes offshore we can assist with short term rental of PPE for boat and helicopter transfers.
