The Danish liner carrier has resumed service to Iran after a five-year absence and just a year and a half after the Maersk Tigris was fired upon by the Iran Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy.
Hanjin opposed Ashley Furniture’s motion for a freeze on the amounts it owes the carrier, along with a reduction in the amounts owed, saying in a court filing that if the motion was granted, its ability to reorganize would have been severely jeopardized.
The U.S. District Bankruptcy Court in Newark, N.J. will hear from companies today that said Hanjin is not “promptly” informing creditors when ships go off charter.
Registration takes less than 1 minute.
The Danish conglomerate said one division will focus on transport and logistics, while the other division will focus on energy.
Various media reports have speculated the sale of South Korean liner carrier Hanjin Shipping, viewing COSCO and Maersk Line as possible buyers.
Sources said the South Korean liner carrier will lay off about 180 members of its 500 person workforce in the United States on Friday.
