DP World Australia Cyber Security Incident

November 13, 2023

Seabridge is closely monitoring the situation at DP World Australia (DPWA) following a recent cyber security incident that impacted their terminal operations across the country. We are committed to keeping our customers informed and mitigating the impact on our logistics services.

DPWA recently experienced a significant cyber security attack, leading to operational disruptions at their terminals in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, and Fremantle. This incident has caused delays and challenges in container movements, affecting logistics and supply chain operations nationwide.

As of 9 am AEDT on 13 November, we are pleased to report that DPWA has resumed operations at all of its ports following successful system tests. This resumption is a critical step towards normalising the flow of goods and services. DPWA anticipates moving approximately 5,000 containers out of their Australian terminals today, signalling a significant move towards operational normality.

However, DPWA has advised that their investigation and remediation efforts are ongoing, and there may be temporary disruptions to their services in the near future. Seabridge is actively monitoring these developments and is prepared to adapt our operations accordingly to minimise any potential impact on our customers.

We understand the importance of reliable and timely logistics services and are committed to maintaining transparent communication with our customers during this period. Our team is working tirelessly to ensure that any disruptions are managed efficiently and that alternative solutions are explored wherever possible.

For the latest updates and information, we encourage our customers to visit our website regularly or contact our customer service team. Seabridge appreciates your understanding and patience as we navigate these challenges together.
