The port of Genoa will soon be reached by a new sea transport container service from the Far and Middle East to Spain, operated solely by the South Korean company, Hmm. The news was revealed by a poster from the company that is already circulating among industry insiders in Italy.

The capacity of these ships will be around 8-10,000 TEUs, and the terminal scaled will be the Psa of Genoa Pra’.
Hmm added that the entire journey will take 84 days, while it is not yet known when Fim will be operational or when its inaugural stop in Genoa will take place.
