  • Handling Costs
    The cost involved in transferring, preparing and otherwise contracting inventory.
  • Hangertainer
    Specialised container equipped with hanger beams for the purpose of stowing garments on hangers.
  • Harmless Chemicals
    A cargo description, which is a contradiction of terms. A chemical is a substance and whether it is harmless or not, depends on the context in which the substance appears or is used. Maersk Line does not accept harmless chemicals as a valid cargo description on the shipping documents.
