Maersk the Latest Victim of Multinational Cyber-Attack

Maersk and its associated APM Terminals are the latest victims of the Petya Virus, a cyber-attack that commenced at daybreak Tuesday, June 27th in the Ukraine and Russia. The virus has already disrupted the operations of six multinational companies and has led Maersk to powering off its internal systems to ensure data integrity.

Maersk’s booking system was severely affected and will remain offline for the remainder of the day. APM Terminals, owned and operated by Maersk, was also severely affected and operations were halted at the New York, New Jersey and Rotterdam facilities until further notice. Customers who need to contact Maersk are encouraged to do so by phone.

Maersk has reported that all ships on the water are running smoothly and on time, though cargo at the terminals will likely incur slight delays.

We will continue to monitor the situation and keep you updated as more information becomes available.
