2016-08-31 - Hanjin Shipping filing court receivership
Today, Hanjin Shipping ( 7th largest container carrier in the world) filed court receivership in Seoul. As an effect, some carriers have already announced to reject any containers by Hanjin, booked on their vessels and will not ship any of their own containers on Hanjin vessels.
This has an enormous impact on worldwide vessel planning, routings and finally the complete shipping chain. Re-bookings, demurrage, detention or other costs must be calculated for all effected shipments and payable by freight payer resp. shipper.
