Infographic: US freight industry’s reaction to Hanjin collapse

Parent company Hanjin Group has pledged financial action to unload the stuck containers. Starting next week, the South Korean government will also send 20 containerships to relieve the supply jam. But shippers should take these developments with a spoonful of salt. Given the fluid nature of this situation, it’s always better to be safe than sorry.

Shippers should take note of how ports across the country are currently handling Hanjin’s shipments and any possible shipping delay charges. Some require fees be paid up front prior to delivery, others request for truckers to bring their own chassis. Here’s an infographic of various ports and their management of Hanjin’s cargo. Do note that because of its unprecedented nature and lack of proper protocol, the following information could still change.
