Charter owners, terminal operators and container lessors have been identified as the largest among Hanjin Shipping’s claim creditors, according to Alphaliner.

Non-operating containership owner Seaspan tops the list of individual creditors with outstanding claims of KRW 46 billion (USD 41.6 million). Together with other containership owners identified by Alphaliner, total claims for unpaid charter hire and other related debt amounted to USD 229.5 million.

Charter owners form the largest group among Hanjin’s claim creditors, representing 29% of the total claims listed.

Container terminal operators and stevedores form the second largest group of creditors, with a total that reaches some USD 182 million. This group of debtors is spread across the globe and almost all terminals that used to be called by Hanjin Shipping have been affected by the carriers’ filing for receivership on August 31. North American port operators account for 42% of the total claims filed in this segment.

The third largest group comprises container and chassis leasing companies that collectively account for USD 67 million of the claims listed.

Alphaliner added that the final claim figure could amount to more than the earlier announced sum of KRW 901 billion (USD 800.3 million) as the deadline for creditors to register claims with Hanjin Shipping’s receiver expired on October 25.

The figure was earlier derived from the list of financial claims against Hanjin, released on 10 October, which revealed a total of 2,998 creditors.
