HMM to offer its own Asia/Europe service

[ March 2, 2018   //   ]

South Korean carrier HMM is to launch a new Asia-North Europe Express (AEX) service in April independent of its existing space-sharing agreement with the 2M alliance. It will deploy ten Panamax (4,600teu) vessels calling at Pusan, Shanghai, Ningbo, Kaohsiung, Shenzhen, Singapore, Colombo, north-west Europe including Southampton and return to Singapore, Hong Kong, and Pusan.

HMM said it also plans to order new eco-friendly mega containerships in the first half of 2018 which would be positively considered for its Europe service.
