An HMM official said, “Since Hanjin shipping’s collapse, HMM cargo processing at Busan port has hit a new record, exceeding 170,000 TEU/month for May to July consecutive months this year attributed to HMM’s service and volume reliability” And that “For this year, we expect to handle more volume than 2.0 million TEU at Busan port.”
