Looking for a job in inland shipping?

Inland shipping is where it all started for Flexbox Crewing. In just a couple of years, our decade-long industry experience and innovative software have positioned us as one of the main manning agencies in the European rivertransport market.


Every day we post up to two hundred maritime professionals on river barges across Europe through our international manning branch in Limassol and our local service office in the Netherlands. Our recruiters are in direct contact with sailors and captains from various nations, including the Netherlands, Poland, Germany, the Czech Republic, and the Philippines.

Our top priority is that our people fit the position and ship on a professional and personal level. To find this sweet spot, we use our in-house developed software to map and match the hard skills, and our experienced recruiters who evaluate the personal aspect.

We have three options for permanent crew. Either we recruit the crew to be employed directly with the client. OR we post our people on our clients’ vessels, or we could take on the total crew management for a barge.

Outsource the recruitment of the talent your organization needs to us. We have developed a powerful job board – JobWave – where we will promote your company’s positions. You only pay us a success fee when you hire our proposed candidate. Afterward you can contract and pay the employee through your regular infrastructure.

We can post workers, which we have under a Flexbox contract, to work on your vessel. Posted workers will give your company the flexibility to quickly up and downscale your workforce. All while avoiding the risks and responsibilities which come with direct employment. Perfect for short-term to middl- long solutions. Flexbox also holds an AÜG license to post workers to German-owned vessels.

We offer Total Crew Management. We will recruit the needed crew and take care of the transportation/crew changes and complete salary administration. We will also make sure all positions are manned at all times, like during illness. Let Flexbox handle the crew so you can focus on your business.

In addition to these options, we provide payroll and contract services through our Dutch or Cypriot branches. Contact us to discuss your unique requirements. Navigating the complex labor laws in the European Inland shipping market can be challenging. Our goal is to find a customized solution for your business.


Every vessel has to deal with ad-hock demand for crew from time to time. Reasons for this could be illness, holidays, accidents, or simply a change of plans. Providing quick solutions in such cases is one of Flexbox’s main strengths. We have built a database with more than 1000 Inland-shipping professionals from sailors to captains. Some are full-time self-employed jumpers, and others like to work an extra week now and then.

Our in-house developed software will provide a list of suitable jumpers based on the ranking- and patent requirements, timeframe, ship type, and required language skills. Our team will try and find an available jumper for your vessel within hours, and do whatever is needed to get the reliever to your vessel in the most economical way possible.
