Ocean carrier schedule and capacity database BlueWater Reporting constructed a chart illustrating Hanjin’s impact on three separate trades.
Utilizing BlueWater Reporting’s Carrier Trade Route Deployment Report, the chart below provides an overview of Hanjin’s impact on the following trades: North Asia to Central Asia, Asia to North America, and Asia to Europe.
The chart analyzes the carrier’s deployed capacity towards these three trades before it filed for court receivership Aug. 31.
Since then, shippers have been scrambling to find out what will happen next, while several carriers have announced new services to fill the void of the now insolvent Hanjin.
