Hanjin ship docks in Vancouver after weeks in legal limbo

Hanjin Scarlet

(VANCOUVER, British Columbia) — A Hanjin containership anchored in legal limbo near Prince Rupert since the end of August finally docked in Vancouver on Thursday, CBC News reported. Scarlet is one of two Korean ships that have been stranded in Canadian waters since the world's seventh-largest shipping line filed for bankruptcy. Roughly half of Scarlet's crew of about 25 will have to stay with the ship for some time to maintain it, but they will get paid. The other Hanjin ship, Vienna, is anchored near Victoria.
