There has been some hoo-ha on LinkedIn over Expeditors, and whether its cyber-attack had been under-reported.

It’s very difficult to report on cyber-attacks – not only are companies difficult to get hold of, both because communications are down and because they are really busy (and really don’t want the publicity), but there is an uncomfortable ethical dimension too. Should ransomware attacks be highlighted beyond the obvious supply chain disruptions? There is also an element of not wanting to kick a company while it’s down. On the other hand, customers need to know what is going on, and rivals need to learn from the mistakes, or good practice, of others. Either way, The Loadstar, Premium and others have reported on Expeditors, but here is an update for those that want one, from The Stack. And, it appears, things aren’t going well for the US forwarder.
