|Korean bulker firm goes bust|
|Monday, 16 February 2009 09:16|
Another shipowner from Seoul has filed for insolvency. Initially established as Samsun Shipping Corporation in 1980, bulk operator Samsun Logix filed for court receivership after a Swiss company was unable to pay over US$40 million worth of fees. Besides this now-bankrupt client, Samsun also had outstanding payments from Korea, China and Singapore’s Armada, which notably filed for bankruptcy last month.
Samsun Logix had around 100 ships in its fleet.
