The CORSICA linea commitments

Manoeuvre à bord

Diversity and pluralism

Although the Merchant Navy is still a highly masculine universe, the company works on a daily basis for the integration and development of women's personnel both on board and on the ground.


Training & professional development

Throughout their career in the company, employees are regularly trained, especially on health and safety procedures to minimize accidents related to the inherent dangerousness of the activity.


Respect for employees

Harmony between all employees is a key to the success of the company.
CORSICA linea is committed to listening to everyone and making a regular assessment to validate the progress points and professional projects.
In addition, the company has initiated a profit-sharing process so that all employees can reap the rewards of the company's success.


Our portal dedicated to professional training.


CORSICA Linea has a dedicated website for its training center: https://www.formation.corsicalinea.com/, aimed at seafarers.
