Dear Valued Customers,
DP World Australia detected and began responding to a cyber security incident on Friday, November 10. They promptly initiated protocols, which included engaging with cyber security experts, actively isolating, and containing the incident and notifying the relevant authorities.
In response to the situation, DPW implemented an immediate response to restrict landside access to their Australian port operations.
As a result of these events, some customers may experience disruptions to port operations and accessibility. While cargo operations are still ongoing, Nautical Shipping anticipate low productivity given these circumstances. It is important to note that even if vessel operations are ongoing, significant disruption may arise if cargo cannot enter or exit the ports. This situation is further compounded by the ongoing industrial action, leading to longer waiting times for vessels calling at DP World across Australia.
Nautical Shipping will continue to provide updated information. Please be informed of the following –
