About Us

Briese Schiffahrt Philippines Inc. formerly (Heavylift Manila, Inc.) is a crewing agency operating since July 30, 1992.  For almost two (2)decades Briese Schiffahrt has been the home of Filipino seafarers specializing in heavylift operation.  From cadetship to Captains and Chief Engineers, HMI has nurtured the careers of its crew. We take away complications from shipowners/shipmanagers and crew alike. 


Briese Schiffahrt uses the enhanced In-House processing through electronic submission (E-SUBMIT) in processing contracts with the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA).  This ensures fast, efficient and hassle-free deployment of crew.


Briese Schiffahrt was first certified to ISO9002:1994 by TÜV Rheinland Philippines Ltd., on December 15, 1997. The company has undergone several successful re-certification to the latest versions of the International Standard, ISO 9001: 2000, ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 9001:2015.
