Shipping Container Transport Companies


Hyundai Merchant Marine (HMM) is a Korean shipping line with over 60 sea routes and more than 100 ports of call worldwide. The company launched in 1976 with three crude oil carriers, and today has a fleet that’s over 100 vessels strong. If you need an agent to organise shipping container transport with HMM or any other of the major world shipping companies, TSL is ready to help you out. As a leading Melbourne freight forwarder, we can organise your shipping operation right through from pick-up to delivery.

HMM’s Vessels

The company has around 120 vessels of sizes up to 13,000 TEU (Twenty-Foot Equivalent Units) and a total capacity of over 430,00 TEU. You can find out more about the company’s fleet here.

HMM’s Shipping Containers

HMM offers its shipping container transport services using a range of different shipping containers. As well as the standard 8ft6-high containers, which are available in lengths of 20ft and 40ft, it offers a range of specialised shipping containers for larger and bulkier cargo types. It uses super-rack containers which are up to 13ft6 tall; these are not offered by all shipping companies. Open-top and flat-rack containers are also available.

HMM in Australia

The company’s Australian branch is in the St Leonards area of Sydney. There are two services linking Australia to Asia: the Australia No. 1 Express, which sails to China, and the Australia No. 2 Express, which connects Australia with Japan, Korea and China. The vessels call at Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney.
