Our Seafarer's Family

We treat our seafarers’ family and dependents as integral partners of our company.

Towards this, we have established the NYK-FIL Seafarers Dependents Associations (SDA) in various parts of the country. The SDA has chapters in Manila, Iloilo, Cebu, Davao, and Cagayan de Oro. We visit them annually in their locales to dialogue and bond, conducting assemblies to enrich relationships and celebrate their talents.

An average of 400 participants attends these gatherings which are highly anticipated by all.

Our Satellite office in Iloilo province in the western Visayas region of the Philippines is an added service to our crew residing thereat and nearby areas to enable them to save on transportation and board and lodging costs when reporting to the Manila office as well as allowing more time spent for loved ones.
