Hanjin vessel being worked in Prince Rupert

Cargo aboard the 4,600-TEU Hanjin Scarlet is currently being discharged at the Port of Prince Rupert in British Columbia.

   The Port of Prince Rupert in British Columbia said cargo aboard the containership Hanjin Scarlet is currently being discharged at the Fairview Container Terminal.
   The vessel berthed at the terminal at 06:00 this morning.
   Ocean carrier schedule and reporting database BlueWater Reporting illustrates the Hanjin Scarlet operates on the transpacific PNH loop, with COSCO and Yang Ming as slot purchasers. The PNH has a rotation of Ningbo, Shanghai, Busan, Prince Rupert, Seattle, Vancouver (British Columbia), Tokyo, Busan, Gwangyang and Ningbo. Six vessels averaging 5,076 TEUs operate on the loop.
   The Hanjin Scarlet was anchored directly upon arrival at Prince Rupert on Aug. 30, in the wake of reports that Hanjin Shipping had applied for court protection from its creditors in Korea.
   The port said Canadian National Railway and DP World, the operator of Fairview Container Terminal, “have established processes to accommodate the movement of Hanjin containers through the Port of Prince Rupert. DP World requires pre-payment for handling of all Hanjin containers.”
   In addition, the port said DP World Prince Rupert has established a customer service center through which arrangements can be made. Cargo owners should telephone 250-624-2124 ext. 2333 or email customerservice@prr.dpworld.ca.
   CN is offering to provide services for the movement of goods in containers discharged at the Port of Prince Rupert to destinations in Canada and the U.S. and will be publishing relevant rail charges.
   Cargo owners are urged to contact CN at hanjinimports@cn.ca, including their full name and telephone number, the vessel name carrying Hanjin containers, and the container unit numbers.
   Meanwhile, three Hanjin ships in or near the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles are not yet unloading cargo, nor has a Hanjin ship called the Port of Oakland, according to port spokesmen.
   As of late Wednesday afternoon, Kip Louttit, executive director of the Marine Exchange of Southern California, said the Hanjin Greece moved from drifting 20 miles off the coast of Carlsbad/Oceanside to drifting in Mexican waters 30 miles off the Mexican coast. He noted that effective Jan. 1, 2015, ships operating in the “Emissions Control Area (ECA) along the U.S. coast must use 0.1 percent low sulfur fuel.
   “For the USA, this is within 200 miles of the coast, but it cuts off at the border with Mexico because Mexico is not part of the designation. Many ships carry only a limited supply of low sulfur fuel since they spend most of their voyage outside an ECA. Hanjin Greece moved outside the North American ECA and is therefore not required to burn low sulfur fuel,” he said.
   He said the Hanjin Montevideo remains anchored in the port of Long Beach inside the breakwater, and Hanjin Boston remains anchored in a Foxtrot Anchorage outside the Long Beach breakwater.
