The major creditors include the local branches of Construction Bank of China, Agricultural Bank of China, Bank of China and Zhejiang Materials Industry Group Corp, a State-owned logistics company, according to Yu.

 "The debtor and the creditors are considering reorganization, because the shipbuilding industry is not in good shape and the outlook is not optimistic, either. The company still has a ship order to be delivered," he said.
