Nowadays the shipping industry is frequently confronting circumstances of cross-border insolvency.
Recent media has reported that the shipping industry is now facing it's worst crisis ever, coupled by oversupply of ships adversely affecting freight rates, ship owners are drowning in debt and retreat of financial institutions has dramatically worsened the condition. Looking at the currently battered market conditions, more cross-border shipping cases are likely to surface.
