We develop platforms and tools to support both schipping agencies and maritime professionals

A mix of industry know-how and tech

Flexbox Crewing is founded by Meindert Boxhoorn (63), a maritime dinosaur with 30 years of industry experience, and Michiel van Bellen (33) an ICT entrepreneur. With their shared passion for business development, they’ve found the perfect partnership for a fast-growing industry-transforming agency. As we build our team, we will slowly roll out products and tools to support both shipping companies and maritime professionals.

One example of this is our recently developed job board – JobWave. In short, JobWave provides a platform for  jobseekers and maritime companies to explore new opportunities and showcase themselves. Take a look!
