Six container ships of the bankrupt South Korean shipping company Hanjin Shipping Co. will now be operated by Danish shipping giant Maersk Line, according to Germany’s HSH Nordbank.

The six container ships under the new long-term charter deals are Neopanamax vessels with a capacity of 13,100 TEU each.

Hamburg’s Döhle Group will assume the technical management of all the ships.

“The chartering of the container ships by Maersk Line means that, in a difficult setting, these ships have been given a long-term perspective following the insolvency of Hanjin. In Maersk Line we have a strong partner at our side for this transaction,” Ulrik Lackschewitz, Chief Risk Officer of HSH Nordbank, said.

The announcement comes two months after the South Korean carrier filed for court receivership, which resulted in some 97 of the company’s container ships being left stranded across the globe and unable to load or offload containers.
