HMM sends relief supplies for earthquake victims in Turkey


HMM announced it would transport relief goods and provide empty containers to support the earthquake victims in Turkey.

HMM started to transport 50TEU of relief goods from Busan, Korea, to Mersin, Turkey, on 3 March, and an additional 20TEU is scheduled to be loaded on 17 March. Furthermore, HMM will offer more humanitarian aid in close cooperation with the Turkey Embassy in Korea.

HMM also decided to deliver 150 free empty containers to accommodate the earthquake survivors. Those are expected to serve the purpose of temporary shelter for sufferers who lost their homes.

Separately, HMM will carry some of the shipping containers in Qatar, which were used for the temporary residency in World Cup 2022. Qatar government intended to donate the containers after the World Cup. HMM will ship 570 containers from Hamad, Qatar, to Iskenderun, Turkey, using an MPV (Multi-Purpose Vessel).

Currently, relief supplies such as tents, blankets, food, and other much-needed goods are being placed in the warehouse prepared by the Turkey Embassy in Korea. However, the delivery of aid to Turkey is facing a setback with the delay.

An HMM official said, “HMM will carry out humanitarian support in hopes of rapid recovery and rebuilding from the staggering impact of the tragedy and continue to seek what we can afford to do.”
