They serve on the same vessels many times, frequently on the same teams, they know their colleagues and the ship's operations thoroughly, they speak the same language. All of the crew members are beneficiaries of the company's share scheme. Through sponsorship of the Zadar Nautical College, Tankerska plovidba ensures the future of the area's seagoing tradition.
