HMM introduces exclusive Far East-India-Mediterranean service

HMM has announced the launch of a new service connecting Far East Asia, India and the Mediterranean Sea (FIM) to deliver more comprehensive transportation options in these regions.

The new FIM service is scheduled to commence sailing from Busan on 6 August, with the round trip expected to take 84 days.

MV HMM Blessing will be the first vessel for this new service, with a reported carrying capacity of 11,000 TEU.

This comes two months after HMM announced plans to conduct field tests of an onboard carbon capture system (OCCS) for containerships with Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) and PANASIA.

The port rotation is as follows:

Busan – Kwangyang – Shanghai – Ningbo – Shekou – Singapore – Port Klang – Kattupalli – Nhava Sheva – Mundra – Karachi – Jeddah – (Suez Canal) – Damietta – Piraeus – Genoa – Valencia – Barcelona – Piraeus – Damietta – (Suez Canal) – Jeddah – Karachi – Mundra – Nhava Sheva – Kattupalli – Singapore – Da Chan Bay – Busan. 

An official for HMM stated: “With the introduction of the FIM service, we are expected to extend our reach to the India and Mediterranean trade.

“We will continue to expand our presence in these regions and provide more reliable services with an enhanced service portfolio.” 

In April, HMM signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with GS Caltex to secure marine biofuels.

More recently, HMM announced that its service connecting Far East, India and Latin America (FIL) made its maiden call in Tanjung Priok, Jakarta.
