Singapore’s container terminal operator PSA has set November 28 as the deadline for claiming laden containers from South Korea’s bankrupt shipping firm Hanjin Shipping.

In its notice to cargo owners, consignees, shippers and freight forwarders, PSA said that if the containers and the cargo remain unclaimed after the set date, the company “will take steps to dispose and/or sell them as we may deem fit.”

The terminal operator added that the deadline was set “to ensure that we maintain an optimal port capacity to serve all our customers and partners.”

Once a refundable deposit in the amount of SGD 5,000 (USD 3,530) per container has been paid to ensure the return of empty containers for consolidation purposes, the container can then be transported out of the port area. PSA said that the deposit would be refunded after the unstuffed container is returned to its yards.

Since September 2016, PSA has been working closely with Hanjin Shipping and other parties to facilitate the delivery of local import containers, as well as the loading and transfer of transhipment containers bound for other destinations.

The South Korean shipping firm filed for court receivership on August 31, 2016, after its creditors decided not to provide additional financial support to Hanjin.
