How many workers do containers ship have?
2, How many doctors are suppose to be on board.
Hello Rey, interesting question…
I have never been on a container ship myself but after watching Captain Philips and reading a few books I believe they have a crew of about 15. They work very long hours and it doesn’t sound very glamorous at all. Typically only the captain gets free use of the internet and the captain checks and reads all crew emails before being sent out. Most large shipping companies like Maersk Line do not allow alcohol on board either. I don’t believe they have an actual Doctor on board but they do have staff trained in EMS / first aid procedures.
I hope that helps, cheers The Moving Doctor.
