Maersk Line, one of the world’s largest container shipping companies, said June 28 its cargo booking system was back up and running after a global cyberattack crippled its IT networks a day earlier.

“Further to earlier communications, we are now able to accept bookings via INTTRA,” the company said on Twitter. “Booking confirmation will take a little longer than usual but we are delighted to carry your cargo.”

Earlier, Maersk said it was using alternative channels to take orders manually and to communicate with customers until it could resolve its IT problems.
