Our Facilities: Navigating with convenience and efficiency


To ensure our future remains as bright as our past and present, strategic plans are being

developed to guide us through this ever changing global environment. Central to this plan is an

essential 7-storey 1753 Bldg. and TSM Iloilo Branch as addition to the TSM Group. For the first time in two decades, all our manning agencies are all housed under one roof.


Another add-on is the Family Lounge that provides ample reception space for families and crew.

The establishment of the Family Lounge reflects the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility

and reflects the care and welfare of its people and their families through active participation in

both crew and family affairs.



TSM Maritime Centre, which houses the training facilities, features a 70-seater audio-visual room with sophisticated videotape equipment that allows activities to be recorded and shown to

students, so providing immediate feedback. This facility is a key resource for presentation skills,

employment interview preparation, hands-on computer training and pre-departure orientation.

Systems for information security and safety, financial and operational performance instruments,

personnel time,attendance monitoring and office automation are continually enhanced for greater availability, reliability and security.


TSM Group continually upgrades to leading-edge technologies to provide a robust information

technology environment to support its businesses and those of its partners with the most efficient and reliable communication systems.

rooms. It features an audio-visual room which can accomodate 70 persons. IT rooms for hands-

on computer training, and a pre-departure 30-seater orientation area.



This Career Development Plan is our way to set future goals for progression of our seafarers and motivate them in reaching management level at the earliest possible time, guided by statutory and regulatory requirements. Encourage them to take the next step. We hope that this will help our seafarer's retention and reduce the need of hiring new crew/personnel.
