Cyber attacks: Hackers strike across Europe, sparking widespread disruption

India's shipping ministry said meanwhile a terminal run by Maersk at the Mumbai port, the largest in India, was also affected.

The terminal handles 4,500 containers per day.

Maersk said meanwhile that all new orders were also on hold. "We will update when we have more information".

According to his calculations, Maersk's shipping lines - Maersk Line itself, Safmarine, Seago, MCC Transport and Sealand - book 3,300 teu every hour, representing some $2.7m in revenue per hour.

"Some terminals that were down this morning are now up and running", Clerc said.

While APM's so-called NV1 terminal at Rotterdam was working, the more automated NV2 did not "have much operations going on there today".

The company did note that its Maersk Line vessels are maneuverable and able to communicate and that the crews are safe.

Paul Tsui, managing director of one of Maersk's clients, Hong Kong-based logistics company Janel Group, said in an email sent to Reuters that "the system of Maersk has been shut down and not able to (be accessed) since late evening yesterday".

In Spain, Maersk's APM terminal at the port in Barcelona is now closed, according to an official.

The series of cyberattacks began in Russian Federation and Ukraine on Tuesday, hitting government and corporate computer systems across the world as the virus spread to western Europe and across the Atlantic.

In a news blast, Maersk said: "We can confirm that Maersk IT systems are down across multiple sites and business units due to a cyber attack".

Meanwhile, in a separate incident Dutch police were also hit by computer chaos on Wednesday, but stressed it was unrelated to the cyberattack. A type of "ransomware", the bug locks data and asks for ransom, and spreads quickly from computer system to system - in this case across Ukraine, Russia, Europe and the U.S. There were few reports from Asia of disruptions.

The Port of New York & New Jersey said in a tweet on Tuesday that APM's Terminal would be closed on Wednesday. "We are responding to the situation to limit the impact and uphold operations", a spokesperson said in a statement.

A JNPT official told MEDIA that they have been informed that the operations at Gateway Terminals India, GTI, have come to a standstill due to the malware attack.
