The Leading Daily International News Service for Seafarers

NEWSlink is an unrivalled daily news and information service customised for seafarers and produced specifically to keep crew in touch with news from home. In light of MLC-2006 implementation, NEWSlink provides the ideal entry-level welfare service for commercial ships.

NEWSlink offers:

  • Portfolio of 75+ publications in 17 languages
  • Delivered in a range of formats depending on the communications capacity onboard
  • Newspapers produced in the U.K., Philippines, and India by an experienced team of multi-lingual editors
  • Top stories of national interest, politics, economy, business, entertainment, celebrity, sports, and weather, as well as special editions for noteworthy events

NEWSlink Delivery

NEWSlink newspapers are delivered daily by email in a high-compression/low-cost format. They are sent to the ship, ready to be viewed on screen or printed out in a standard A4 format. News can be sent in HTML, PDF, or our own proprietary zipped format. Onboard, seafarers may access the news by downloading the file on their computer, opening an app on a tablet or smartphone, or reading a printed document.

All NEWSlink services are customisable and can have an additional use of including key communications from the head office to convey important messages and enhance a sense of company unity.
