HMM may explore autonomous ships, trans-Atlantic trade
(FreightWaves) HMM said it will use data collected at its newly opened fleet control center in part to explore the commercial viability of autonomous ships. The South Korean carrier also may be exploring reentry into the trans-Atlantic trade.
HMM has begun monitoring and directing operations of its existing vessels from the control center at the shipping line’s research and development facility in Busan, South Korea.
The HMM fleet includes 12 newbuilds, each with a capacity of 24,000 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs). The South Korean company took delivery of the 12th ship in September. The first of the massive container ships, the HMM Algeciras, launched in April.
