Bankrupt Shipping Company Causing Woes for Publishers - PW (Publishers' Weekly)

Today's trip took Panzer to the Publishers Weekly site. With a little digging our intrepid kitty pilot found a post about some publisher problems with the Hanjin Shipping Company.

Ships make me sick.
According to a post by Calvin Reid, several publishing companies were using the now bankrupt Hanjin Shipping Company. Hanjin ships were being used to transport the finished print books of HarperCollins, St. Martin's and others from their foreign manufacturers to the United States. Deliveries of the books are either late or not at all. Cargo, including the books, is being seized by Hanjin's creditors. Some ships loaded with cargo are stranded at sea unable to stop at a port.

Panzer says, "Hmm ... This isn't a problem with ebooks."

Note: This is a longish short post. Bring a cup of tea and a muffin and a half for today's reading selection.
