Troubled HANJIN boxships scattered along North American West Coast
HANJIN SCARLET arrived at the port of Prince Rupert, British Columbia, at night Aug 30 and was immediately anchored in the inner harbour. Under normal circumstances, the ship would go directly to the terminal for unloading, but it has not been handled because of the uncertain situation, said port spokesman Michael Gurney. The port authority said in a release that it is working with DP World, which owns the terminal, and CN Rail to find a resolution.
HANJIN GREECE and HANJIN CONSTANTZA, scheduled to arrive at Los Angeles and Long Beach on Aug 31, are idling off ports of arrival.
Meanwhile, HANJIN MONTEVIDEO (IMO 9431707, dwt 50488, capacity 4253 TEU ) called Long Beach on Aug 30, departed on Aug 31, but instead of steaming to Japan, was brought to anchor on Long Beach anchorage.
