DP World Australia Cyber Incident

Dear Valued Customers & Partners,

Since Friday afternoon, DP World Australia has been contending with a nationwide systems outage due to a ‘cyber incident.’ As of this morning, the latest update indicates that services are slowly resuming. However, there will be significant delays in container services as systems and processes are restored.

DPW informs that the initiation of all R+D operations is underway, but the extent of progress differs at each terminal. The recovery levels are primarily shaped by the impact of existing container backlog volumes, and ongoing efforts are being made to tackle these challenges throughout the course of today and tonight.
