MSC confirms that it is not under attack from ransomware known as ‘PETYA’.
At this time, we would like to reassure all our customers that MSC’s systems and business operations are working normally and bookings can be placed as usual.
The cyber-attack has affected our 2M partner Maersk Line among other businesses and governments in Europe. MSC offers its full support to Maersk Line at this time, and we are working together to find other means to transmit data between the two companies. This includes information such as vessel bayplans, load lists, and customs information.
If necessary, the 2M partners are prepared to divert ships away from terminals which are not currently operating as a result of the attack. MSC operates 53 terminals around the world which are fully available to 2M vessels to load and unload cargo with minimal delay.
We would like to thank you in advance for your patience. We will keep you informed of the developments as they become known.
