HMM to deliver medical equipment to India 
Ocean freight rate to be just $1 per box for such containers


HMM has announced that it plans to transport containers carrying Covid-related medical devices and emergency relief supplies bound for India, contributing to overcoming the extreme situation in the country. 


The devices include medical oxygen supplies such as medical grade oxygen, oxygen tanks, oxygen bottles, oxygen concentrators, steel pipes for manufacturing oxygen cylinders, and associated equipment. 


HMM has decided to charge just $1 as ocean freight rate for every container carrying medical supplies to India. Vessel space and container equipment are also assigned to such containers as top priority to expedite the delivery process, it highlighted in a release. 


An HMM official said, “Even though we are experiencing the shortage of both vessel space and containers worldwide, humanitarian activities should come first. We would like to carry out our social responsibilities with our all-round expertise and experience, while at the same time serving the world better than what we used to do.”
