Port Service

The Port Service operates Rosenhill Seamen's Center in Gothenburg, Kaknäs Seamen's Club in Stockholm, and Johannisborg Seamen's Club in Norrköping. In Malmö we offer seamen to relax in the municipal recreation facility Kockum Fritid.

These seamen's clubs are examples of commitment to fulfil the convention MLC 2006, ratified by Sweden,  "concerning the seafarers' welfare at sea and in port" and drawn up by the UN labour organization ILO. The Swedish Seaman's Service participates in the International Committee on Seafarers' Welfare (ICSW).

Port Service in Swedish ports is serving seafarers of all nations. The service consists of ships' visits, information, transportation and cultural and leisure activities, e.g. sports or outings.

Port Service abroad is focusing on Swedish ships' crews. The service is carried out in close cooperation with Swedish and Nordic seamen's missions. Major features are ships' visits, distribution of the latest Swedish newspapers and periodicals, library exchange, transportation, sports and outings. Our local representative in Antwerp also serve crews aboard non-Swedish flagged vessels, assigned to our Service agreement.

We can offer book changes in many ports around the world through various cooperations.
