A.P. Moller-Maersk reopened its Port of Los Angeles terminal Friday as the shipping giant restored many of its operations worldwide following a Tuesday cyberattack.
The Copenhagen, Denmark-based company said on its website that it expected to return to “a close to normal environment” by Monday at the 76 port terminals it operates globally.
Maersk, through its subsidiary APM Terminals, operates Pier 400 at the Port of Los Angeles, the largest terminal by cargo volume there and the shipper’s Southern California base of operations. Early Friday the terminal was able to receive imports and handle empty containers, but it still wasn’t receiving exports, Maersk said on Twitter.
A terminals status report on the Maersk website listed the Port of Los Angeles as being 25 percent operational Friday morning and indicated it was one of the last to come back online after the attack.
Port officials said Thursday the terminal shutdown hadn’t had a significant impact on cargo movement or other port operations. Maersk is the largest carrier at the Port of Los Angeles and the largest shipping company in the world.
