Hanjin Marine Arrives at NWSA Terminal

The Hanjin Marine is the first Hanjin ship to call at one of the Northwest Seaport Alliance’s (NWSA) terminals, after the South Korean shipping company filed for receivership in late August.

The Hanjin Marine was expected to call at Terminal 18 in Seattle on August 25. The vessel was scheduled to call Terminal 46, however, this was changed due to space issues.

Terminal 18 said it will not charge for import pickups and will not accept empty containers.

On September 22, 2016, the Hanjin Marine was anchored off Vancouver Island and the second ship, the Hanjin Scarlet was also at anchor outside of Prince Rupert. According to NWSA, it was unclear whether either ship will call Seattle.

The Hanjin Scarlet was anchored directly upon arrival at Prince Rupert on August 30, in the wake of reports that Hanjin Shipping had applied for court protection from its creditors. The ship finished unloading cargo at the port on September 9 and has been anchored since then outside the port.

NWSA Olympic Container Terminal (OCT) in Tacoma is still not accepting or dispatching any empty Hanjin containers. In addition, Husky Terminal in Tacoma is neither receiving nor releasing any empty Hanjin containers.

According to terminal operator Total Terminals International (TTI), Hanjin gate transactions at Terminal 46 are performed for import delivery only.

Last week, it was reported that cash held by Hanjin, coupled with commitments from the company’s leading shareholder, the leading creditor and the parent group’s CEO, should be enough to cover the costs of unloading cargo from the company’s boxships stranded offshore.
