Subject: IMPORTANT NOTICE – HANJIN SCARLET V29E
|The Hanjin Scarlet berthed last night at the Port of Prince Rupert. Vessel discharge operations started today at 0800 hrs west coast time and the terminal operator is estimating that all containers should be unloaded by early morning September 8th.
Delmar has been diligently working with the terminal operator in Prince Rupert and the Canadian National Railway as to ensure that Delmar shipments on the Hanjin Scarlet move inland without delay and on a priority basis.
Since the carrier has applied for receivership – Delmar has diverted inbound Montreal and Toronto shipments, terminating them at the port of Prince Rupert. Port dues, railways costs and other extraordinary charges will be settled directly with Hanjin vendors as to ensure that import containers are offloaded and put to rail without delay. Our goal is to avoid any imminent congestion.
There will be additional charges levied by the port operator to cover unpaid berthing and tugboat dues on a per container basis – this additional charge will only apply on containers booked with Hanjin, not with other CKYHE partners. CN has also confirmed that they will apply an “in bond” charge for eastern Canada and US bound shipments.
Delmar is continuously monitoring the situation and will update our esteemed clients accordingly.
