After the June 27, 2017, cyberattack known as Petya crippled A.P. Moller-Maersk’s IT and booking systems, leading to congestion at some of the 76 ports run by the company’s APM Terminals unit, the shipping line recently announced they had restored almost full functionality to their online shipping portal. In addition, Maersk is currently accepting future bookings via both EDI and INTTRA—reporting that EDI functionally has been completely restored.
For APM Terminals, all impacted terminals are open and operations are stabilizing while Maersk reports that productivity is increasing. The Maasvlakte II terminal (Rotterdam, NL) is now open for export and import operations via the gate with vessel and rail operations expected to resume on Thursday, July 6th.
Major IT systems are up and Maersk Line’s online booking portal My.Maerskline.com is online: the portal currently supports functionalities such as booking and printing of bills of lading. Other functionalities are expected in the coming days and the portal is operating at normal traffic levels. Maersk continues to work towards bringing container track and trace functionality, all booking systems and other customer facing applications back online, and the backlog of bookings is being processed.
As Deringer continues to receive more information we will keep you updated. If you have any questions or concerns about your shipment, please do not hesitate to contact Deringer’s Marketing Department. For further operational updates, please visit Maersk’s website – here.
