Hyundai Merchant Marine Upgrades Involvement in G6’s LOOP7
Hyundai Merchant Marine, HMM, upgrades its involvement in G6’s LOOP7 service connecting Europe and Asia. HMM, who used to be a slotter, will deploy 2 out of 11 vessels on the service joining the current operators APL, MOL and NYK. The first HMM vessel to sail the route will be the HYUNDAI DREAM, starting from March 5th on. The average weekly capacity on the service is scheduled to gradually increase from 10,500 TEU to 12,500 TEU.
