I think it's safe to say that most firms don't plan on filing for bankruptcy protection. It only happens when the creditors force the matter and the firm needs court protection to continue operations and shed various liabilities. Also, at some point suppliers and outsourced services worry about getting paid, and customers decide to go with another shipper rather than take a gamble. You don't plan on stuff like this, it just happens and you react.
