BoxTech database exceeds 11m containers after HMM fleet upload

Hyundai Merchant Marine (HMM) is the latest global carrier to join the BoxTech Global Container Database, making details of more than 11m units in total available to registered users.

HMM, the 12th largest global carrier, joins 2M carriers Maersk and MSC, which have already uploaded their container fleets to the database, operated on a non-profit basis by the BIC (Bureau International des Containers).

Major carriers, including CMA-CGM and APL, have also registered their fleets, alongside hundreds of smaller owners and operators.

With the addition of HMM, Korea is now particularly well represented within the BoxTech Global Container Database, with SM Line, Pan Ocean and CK Line having previously uploaded their fleets.

With details of more than 11m containers, the fast-growing database gives the shipping community instant access to the technical characteristics of around 45% of the global container fleet in a single location, using a standard API.
