The government said a 60 billion won ($54 million) loan pledged by Korean Air Lines, Hanjin‘s largest shareholder, and additional support promised by executives associated with the firm should cover the costs related to the offloading of all Hanjin ships.

“We’ve calculated the costs that will be needed to offload the cargo, and this can be covered roughly with the funds that have been pledged,” Vice Finance Minister Choi Sang-mok told reporters on Friday.
