Aliança's cabotage service utilizes full container vessels that travel the main routes in Brazil, including from Manaus to Rio Grande and on to Montevideo and Buenos Aires. They are crewed by men and women performing their functions and activities within an integrated management system (S.G.I.), which calls for continuous improvement and state-of-the-art operations.
In October, to increase crew satisfaction, improve the quality of work on board and raise the performance level of Aliança vessels, the company implanted a system known as 1X1. This consisted of rotations of 56 days at sea and 56 days on shore , allowing minor variations, to maintain the crew exchange at the port of Itaguaí, Rio de Janeiro. In the future, the rotation may work with smaller intervals, if the routes change.
With the implementation of the 1X1 system, crews spend 6 months at sea, 5 months at port and 1 month on holiday.
The new Aliança policy is assured by the planned construction of new ships and the renewal of the fleet with the recently acquired Aliança Manaus and Aliança Santos vessels, which have the latest technology.
