Experts say that the real economic damage from the "Petya" attack stems not from the ransom, but from the way it forces companies to take down their own business IT systems in order to prevent the malware from spreading.
Netherlands-based shipping company TNT Express, now a subsidiary of FedEx, also said it was experiencing system interference following a global cyber attack, however, it did not specify whether or not it was related to the Petya attack.
"We are assessing the situation in each terminal and we are tracking down what's going on in all our business units", she said.
"We continue to assess and manage the situation to minimize the impact on our operations, customers and partners from the current situation", Maersk said. "Precautionary measures have been taken to ensure continued operations", it added.
"Unfortunately due to the impact on our IT and communications systems we are limited in our ability to communicate with you".
