Abstract [sv]

En omfattande omflaggning av svenska fartyg har pågått under en längre tid. Tidigare har det främst berört andra segment av den svenska sjöfarten, men det senaste året har trenden med omflaggning även spridit sig till färjor. Syftet med denna studie har varit att kartlägga vilka utmaningar som finns med att bedriva färjesjöfart under svensk flagg och hur framtiden kan komma att se ut för svenska sjöbefäl inom färjesjöfarten. Kartläggningen gjordes genom intervjuer med fem representanter från rederier inom färjenäringen. Det gjordes även två kompletterande intervjuer med en representant från en facklig organisation och med ett aktivt sjöbefäl inom färjenäringen. Resultatet visade relativt entydigt att den främsta utmaningen för rederierna idag är bemanningskostnaden, både vad gäller de svenska avtalen och lönenivån i Sverige. Resultatet visade vidare att svenska sjöbefäl i framtiden troligen kommer få arbeta under mindre fördelaktiga avtal än de som finns idag, inte minst för att sådana avtal finns att tillgå i andra högkostnadsländer i närområdet, men att deras kompetens och kunnande värderas högt. 

Abstract [en]

Change of Swedish ships’ nationality has been an ongoing process for several years. Even though this earlier concerned other segments of the Swedish maritime industry, the changing of a ship’s nationality is now common also amongst ferries. The purpose of this study was to find out what challenges there are in running ferries registered in Sweden. The purpose also included finding out how the future might look for Swedish maritime officers within the ferry industry. The study is based on interviews with five representatives from Swedish ferry companies and two additional interviews with a representative from a Swedish union for Swedish maritime officers and a Swedish maritime officer working in the ferry industry today. The result showed that the biggest challenge for the ferry industry in Sweden today is the cost of labor. This includes both the Swedish agreements and salary levels in Sweden. The result also showed that Swedish maritime officers in the future probably will have to accept working under other agreements less profitable than those existing today, especially as this kind of agreements can be found in other countries in the Baltic Sea Area. It also showed that Swedish maritime officers are highly respected for their competence and knowledge.
