Hanjin Bankruptcy

South Korea’s Hanjin Shipping Co has filed for Bankruptcy on August 31st, 2016 after its creditors chose to end their financial support of them.

 

We are making every effort to protect our clients from the fallout of Hanjin’s bankruptcy by immediately ceasing all bookings with Hanjin. The situation may force a declaration of Force Majeure & unfortunately containers previously booked and currently on board those vessels could be at risk for ship arrest. These containers could incur additional charges such as (but not limited to), port and terminal demurrage, equipment detention, equipment repositioning charges, etc, which would be on the account of Shippers/Consignees listed on the Bills of Lading.

 

UTS will be working on minimizing the impact of delays, but ship lines will be at overcapacity throughout the regions where Hanjin was a major carrier (i.e. Far East to U.S. Trade).  Unfortunately, shippers will be facing rolled bookings and increase freight rates as a direct result of cargo being rerouted from Hanjin.

 

We will have more information as the situation unfolds since the final outcome is still unknown. We are working diligently to monitor the situation and to take possession of all our client’s shipments at origin or destination.
 

We will monitor the situation and provide you with important updates. Please contact your Customer Service Representative if you have any questions.

 

Thank you,

UTS EXPRESS TEAM
