China’s Cosco Shipping Lines has announced that its network applications in the Americas have been fully recovered, one week after it suffered a system breakdown due to a cyber attack last Tuesday.
Temporary mail addresses are still being kept for service continuity while local websites of Cosco US still haven’t been restored yet to ensure network security. However, the company’s hazardous cargo and awkward cargo booking service is back to normal.
“All communication channels including telephone, email, and electronic data exchange have been restored. There has been a further increase in our service response. We are working at full capacity to process all service requests received previously, and the service response is expected to be back on track within this week. The global networks of Cosco Shipping Lines are safe and stable, and our global business operations are steady and orderly,” the company said in a release.
