HMM to charge just 1 US dollar as ocean freight rate for every container carrying medical supplies to India

HMM has decided to charge just 1 US dollars 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.

Even though we are experiencing the shortage of both vessel space and containers worldwide, humanitarian activities should come first.
