Last two Hanjin ships set to call NY-NJ port "The Hanjin Bremerhaven’s arrival follows the berthing Tuesday of another Hanjin ship that was previously arrested and held near the Panama Canal, the 7,500-TEU Hanjin Baltimore. It unloaded 1,500 containers at Maher Terminals and then moved to Global Container Terminals in Bayonne to unload 200 more containers.

The Hanjin Baltimore stopped at both terminals to avoid any problems passing under the Bayonne Bridge.

The bridge is too low for larger ships to pass under without being weighed down with cargo, but vessels must do so to get to Maher Terminals, the only one of the port’s four main terminals with a regular Hanjin call. Port officials worried that if all the containers were removed from the vessel at Maher Terminals, the ship would be too high to go under the bridge on departure."
