Hyundai Merchant to add fleet on Asia-Middle East route.
Hyundai Merchant Marine Co., South Korea's No. 2 shipper, said Sunday it plans to expand its fleet on its Asia-Middle East route as part of efforts to meet rising demand. The shipper plans to add two more container ships on April 19 that leave from South Korea and call at ports in China, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia and Pakistan.
Currently, Hyundai Merchant operates four 4,600-TEU (20-foot equivalent unit) container ships along the route.
The company said it also plans for the vessels to call at more ports in China and Iran to meet demand.
