Ransomware cyberattack - Update on Maersk’ situation

June, 29 2017

Following the cyberattack on Maersk, GEODIS is in constant and closest contact with the world’s largest shipping line. Our teams are fully dedicated to identifying possibly impacted cargo and providing solutions to our clients.

GEODIS is able to accommodate shipment bookings on vessels operated by Maersk Line again, however the process is more time consuming than usual as the shipping line is still working on a resolution to resume normal operations. 

The AP Moller-Maersk Group is working to resolve the global cyberattack that affected numerous of their operating systems across some of their business units. The ransomware also disrupted 17 APM terminals across the globe, some of which needed to close.

Further consequences of the so-called “PETYA”-attack are:

  • Limited possibility to place bookings
  • Possible delays on all served trade lanes
  • Possible delays in releasing cargo

GEODIS is putting all efforts behind obtaining additional information about possibly affected shipments on its customer’s side, and will keep its customers informed as soon as updates become available.

We recommend to our customers to contact their account manager or their nearest GEODIS representative in order to identify the best solution for their cargo, whether aboard on a Maersk operated vessel or whether still to be shipped.

GEODIS remains proactive in keeping its customers informed on the status of their cargo. Contact your local representative should you have any questions and find your local GEODIS office by clicking here.
