Our Heritage

The crewing operations of Wallem in the Philippines started as a department of its ship agency portfolio, Wallem Philippines Shipping, Inc. (WPSI). Over time, the demand for quality crew supply increased and the business of crewing expanded to become an independent company, incorporated in 1976 as Wallem Maritime Services, Inc. (WMSI).

Among seafaring communities in the Philippines, the name Wallem evokes a sense of familiarity – that is, they know who we are, where we are, and what we do. This is because a family member, a distant relative, a neighbour or even an acquaintance is somehow associated with Wallem either on a land or sea-based capacity.

If you can review the resumé of the top 10 maritime executives in the Philippines, chances are, you will find the name Wallem under the heading: Work Experience.

Everyday, we try to inspire our team members to treat each other and our seafarers as members of one big family, to remain true to our policies, and to exemplify our TRIPLE corporate values.
