Maersk Line Expects Minimal Impact from Hanjin’s Move
- Business & Finance
In the wake of the Hanjin Shipping’s decision to commence rehabilitation procedure in Korea, the Danish shipping company Maersk Line said that the company expects the move to have a minimal impact on customers’ cargo.
“We are aware of our customers who have cargo on board two of Hanjin’s operated vessels, Maersk Sebarok and Maersk Senang, sailing on the Chennai Express service between Far East Asia and South East India. While we expect minimal disruption, we are proactively working on reducing impact on cargo delivery,” Maersk Line said.
The company said that it will “strive for this development to not have any impact” on its customers, adding that it will continue to monitor the situation closely.
Additionally, the company said that, “despite their names,” the two chartered vessels, Hanjin New Jersey and Hanjin Florida, sailing on the Mashariki service between Far East Asia and East Africa, “neither of these vessels is owned nor operated by Hanjin Shipping.”
These vessels are fully operated by Maersk Line.
On August 30, the company instructed its global operations centers not to load any cargo onto Hanjin-owned vessels.
