 Statement from A P Moeller-Maersk with reference to the massive hacker attack performed 28-06-2017. 
 
Maersk writes on the corporate webpage: 
 
"The issue remains contained and we continue to work towards technical recovery
A number of IT systems are deliberately shut down across multiple sites and select business units, also impacting email systems. Business continuity plans are being implemented and prioritized.

We continue to assess the situation. Until this analysis is complete, we cannot be specific about how many sites and locations are affected or when normal business operations are restored. The aggregate impact on our business is being assessed.

Our focus is on ensuring the best business continuity possible for our customers and business partners. We are collaborating with IT experts including national cyber-crime agencies and IT industry leaders, to reinstate services safely and without further disruption.

Maersk entities Maersk Oil, Maersk Drilling, Maersk Supply Services, Maersk Tankers, Maersk Training, Svitzer and Maersk Container Industry (MCI) remain operationally unaffected.

All Maersk Line vessels continue to be under control, employees are safe and communication to crew and management onboard is functioning. We are able to accept bookings again via INTTRA, the world’s largest booking platform.

The majority of our terminals are now operational. Some of these terminals are operating slower than usual or with limited functionality. APM Terminals continue to work towards full restoration of its IT systems.

Damco has limited access to certain systems. A business continuity plan has been deployed with a key focus on protecting customers’ cargo flows."
