Hanjin is part of the CKYHE Alliance, which includes Cosco, KLine, Yang Ming, Hanjin and Evergreen, sharing vessel space.
The effects of Hanjin's bankruptcy are manifold and it remains unclear whether Hanjin vessels, which are currently at sea, will be permitted to berth into terminals. Due to this, we have to expect unknown delays.
On a larger scale, Hanjin's demise during this time of the year might drive rate increases on the Asia-Europe and transpacific trade in the next weeks.
As of today, Hanjin vessels, which are currently in ports around the world, are still being unloaded and the containers are being delivered against immediate payment of terminal costs and against placing a (container return) deposit. The level of the deposit varies from port to port.
Even if DACHSER stopped booking Hanjin containers some weeks ago, worldwide import and export shipments are likely to be affected. Please get in touch with your local DACHSER contact to know more about the status of your shipments.
