South African Ports Under Cyber Attack

Posted 07/22/2021

Just this morning, we have been informed by the South African Ports Authority that their IT system has suffered a CYBER ATTACK. All South African Ports (Cape Town, PE and Durban) and Railway Lines are closed with immediate effect. This could not have come at worst time after South Africa experienced the unrest and rioting of the past week.

Due to the impact on TRANSNET systems we expect delays in both uplifting as well as delivering equipment to the ports. Our offices in South Africa will continue to monitor the situation and advise of any further implications on the shipments, but please plan for delays accordingly. 

We keep our colleagues and friends in South Africa in our thoughts during these difficult times, and hope for swift resolution of this issue.
