Oz ports shrug off cyberattack

[ November 20, 2023   //   ]

The recent cyber attack on DP World’s Australian container terminal operations on 10-13 November had little effect on berthing times at Brisbane, Melbourne, and Sydney according to report by visibility firm Project44. It adds that although the Port of Sydney experienced a recent high in berthing time, Brisbane’s remains below that of the week of 29 October and Melbourne is trending lower than the previous week. With operations now resumed, there is an estimated backlog of some 30,000 containers. DP World cautions that potential disruptions may persist.
