Specifically, the company informed this week that it had restored its major IT systems, but was still handling a backlog of orders and was working to bring operations at its ports back to normal. Now, it is working tightly on an ambitious plan to restore its business in serving ports.

"Where we are pleased with the progress we have made to be able to serve customers well on exports, we are very aware that the import experience has not yet been fully brought up to the level it should be,"the company noted in an official statement.

Further, Maersk pointed out that operators should expect a slower response than normal, as it catches up with a continued backlog of orders.
