South Korean container carrier Hyundai Merchant Marine denies that a partnership with competitor SM Line is on the cards. A spokesperson from the carrier says it is unfeasible at this time, reports Fairplay.

This was repeated again one week ago, but HMM shuts down further speculation, even though the carrier received an official proposal from SM Line a few days ago.
