Merchant freight carrier in crisis

Not only are the crews of merchant and passenger ships without good legal protection due to the multi-national operating environment but the users of marine freight services can also be left in limbo when things go wrong. Hanjin Shipping Co Ltd vessels have been seized at Chinese ports in the wake of the South Korean firm's collapse, 10 Hanjin vessels in China have been either seized or were expected to seized by charterers, port authorities or other parties. That adds to one other ship seized in Singapore by a creditor. The owners of the cargoes are left wondering when and how their goods can be discharged so that payment for them can be paid.

The cost of shipping a 40-foot container on the Busan-Los Angeles route has jumped about 55 percent, from $1,100 to around $1,700, according to South Korea-based freight forwarder Pantos Logistics. Rates between South Korea and the U.S. east coast via Panama have risen about 50 percent to $2,400, it added.
