State logistics firm will lift the force majeure it declared at its container terminals from Monday, after a cyberattack, believed to be a ransomware incident, hampered operations.

The force majeure — a contractual clause invoked when factors outside a company’s control render it unable to meet its commitments to customers — took effect on 22 July at terminals in the ports of Cape Town, Durban, Ngqura and Port Elizabeth.

“Transnet believes it is now in a position to service its customers and meet all contractual obligations reliably,” the company said in a statement.  — (c) 2021 Reuters
