ReutersCOPENHAGEN, June 28 (Reuters) – Maersk Line, one of the world’s largest container shipping companies, said on Wednesday its cargo booking system was back up and running after a global cyber attack crippled its IT networks a day earlier.

Earlier, Maersk said it was using alternative channels to take orders manually and to communicate with customers until it could resolve its IT problems. (Reporting by Jacob Gronholt-Pedersen; Editing by David Clarke)
