While Maersk confirmed that it has been hit as part of a global cyber attack named Petya, crippling IT systems down multiple sites and select business units, spokesmen say the damage has been “contained.”
Meanwhile, several key seaports are also reporting that terminals may be up and running soon.
At the Port of Los Angeles, director of media relations Phillip Sanfield told SCMR in an interview that the “good news” was that no Maersk vessels were scheduled to call the gateway yesterday or today.
“Hopefully, our terminals will resume activity tonight or tomorrow,” he said.
APM Terminals, owned by Maersk, at the Port of New York and New Jersey also closed Tuesday “due to the extent of the system impact,” port spokesmen disclosed.
As Maersk Line and the APM Terminals return their operations back to normal, including possibly re-routing vessels to other terminals, spokesmen for say that CargoSmart has pulled together a Vessel Monitoring Dashboard to monitor vessels during this time of recovery from the cyber attack.
The public tracker is available to SCMR readers here:
The dashboard is currently showing all Maersk vessel locations and each vessel’s ETA at its next scheduled port based on AIS (live vessel monitoring) data. It also reveals that about 78% of Maersk vessels are running normally, over 5 knots.
“We are currently working on expanding the visibility in the chart overnight,” said CargoSmart.
