The future of a container ship anchored in Prince Rupert is uncertain after the company that owns it went into receivership.
Port of Prince Rupert spokesman Michael Gurney says the Hanjin Scarlet is currently anchored in the harbour as officials figure out what to do with it and its cargo.
Hanjin Shipping filed for bankruptcy protection in South Korea yesterday, it’s South Korea’s largest shipping company and one of the world’s largest.
Gurney says Hanjin going into receivership will cause ripples worldwide.
He adds the ship’s crew will get support from the local seafarers association if needed.
