Effective immediately, The Port of Virginia will not be accepting any inbound Hanjin cargo (freight for export) at any of the port’s marine or intermodal terminals. The port, however, will accept empty Hanjin containers at the PPCY.

Further, the port is developing plans for how to handle Hanjin cargo that is already on-terminal. Those plans will be communicated to all port customers, users and stakeholders as soon as they have been finalized.

This decision, said John F. Reinhart, CEO and executive director of the Virginia Port Authority, comes as a result of the announcement by the ocean carrier that it had filed for court protection after losing support of its banks in South Korea.

Hanjin Shipping, South Korea's biggest shipping firm, announced the filing for receivership and a request to the court to freeze its assets, which the Seoul Central District Court planned to grant.
