The Wall Street Journal: Stranded Hanjin cargo ships allowed to dock in U.S. ports

Container ships operated by South Korea’s Hanjin Shipping Co., now stranded at sea, soon should be able to dock in U.S. ports, but it remains unclear if the company can afford to pay the army of workers needed to unload the ships.

After a hearing Tuesday, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge John Sherwood agreed to bring Hanjin 117930, +8.27% under the umbrella of U.S. bankruptcy law, temporarily preventing creditors in the U.S. from seizing assets.

But the judge’s order doesn’t guarantee that the ships’ cargo — which includes children’s toys, tires, clothes and computers — will make it to shore and onto store shelves soon.
