With Hanjin Shipping company filing for bankruptcy (see this thread) I am wondering if this has an impact on the games present at Spiel (Essen) or BGG Con. Will we see a Spiel like some years back where several games are missing and only available for demo/display?
Do you know any games with their shipment delayed due to this event?

It won'tbe a big problem for the games I care for. Those are mostly produced by Ludofact in Germany.

A valid point indeed, games booked to ship with this company might not make it if no arrangements are made.
However, who knows which games are being shipped with Hanjin?

I do believe that prices for shipping might go up in the long run, don't forget that one of the reasons behind the bankruptcy is the huge overcapacity. Economically that's bound to have some repercussions.

I just read this news article (in Dutch) which basically tells the Rotterdam container terminal agreed with transport organisations to release the Hanjin containers stuck in Rotterdam (probably the closest sea harbor/container terminal to Essen). So I guess similar deals will be made for other ports and future shipments.

Not that it matters at all, but Antwerp is 30km closer to Essen

I've been monitoring the local news for this kind of info too - I'd hate it if a game I'm interested would get stuck.
