SEOUL Oct 18 South Korean shipper Hyundai
Merchant Marine Co Ltd said on Tuesday it is
considering submitting a preliminary bid for Hanjin Shipping Co
Ltd's Asia-to-U.S. route operations.
The company had not yet made a final decision, a Hyundai
Merchant Marine spokesman said. Hanjin put up the operations,
which would include manpower systems, five container ships and
10 overseas businesses, for sale last week.
Hanjin filed for court receivership on Aug. 31 after its
creditors cut off financial support for the firm.
