Container to India with medical cargo for a nominal fee
HMM has announced a $ 1 freight rate for any Covid-19 medical cargo container shipped to India.
The company will allocate containers and slots for such cargo (oxygen, oxygen cylinders, oxygen concentrators, etc.) on a priority basis. These measures are aimed at quickly overcoming the extreme situation in India with the coronavirus.
“Despite the shortage of capacity and containers around the world, humanitarian action must come first,” HMM said in a statement. "We would like to fulfill our social obligations."
In early May, Zim also made a similar decision: to transport any container with medical cargo to India for a symbolic fee of $ 1.
