UIIA Update on Hanjin Equipment
All UIIA Motor Carriers were sent a notice on September 1, 2016 advising of the recent insolvency procedures that were commenced by Hanjin Shipping Company Ltd. and its impact on UIIA Motor Carriers ability to interchange Hanjin equipment. Motor Carriers were advised that various facilities are establishing their own guidelines in regards to the handling of Hanjin equipment, including some facilities electing to no longer accept any Hanjin equipment. It was suggested that Motor Carriers encountering these types of circumstances make sure that they create a factual record of the attempt to return or pick-up Hanjin equipment should this information be needed in the future to demonstrate the Motor Carrier’s inability to perform drayage services in conjunction with Hanjin equipment.
