Breaking: Marten Transport falls victim to possible cyberattack

Source says Wisconsin-based carrier unable to send rate confirmations or track loads in its systems

Wisconsin-based truckload carrier Marten Transport was targeted in an apparent cyberattack that knocked out its operating system around 2:30 p.m. CDT on Sunday, according to a source familiar with the matter.

Truck drivers and carriers started receiving messages from logistics personnel working for Marten early Monday, stating that the publicly traded company, (NASDAQ: MRTN), headquartered in Mondovi, Wisconsin, is unable to send rate confirmations or track loads in its systems.

The company’s phone lines were down as FreightWaves tried to confirm further details with Marten executives on Monday. 

Marten Transport has nearly 3,500 power units and 3,100 truck drivers.

This is a developing story.

The FREIGHTWAVES TOP 500 For-Hire Carriers list includes Marten Transport (No. 31).

  1. I’m a driver for Marten Transport, we are currently unable to get any details on what is going on. We have drivers that are stranded right now and are unable to get fuel. We cannot reach anyone at any of the terminals or the corporate office in Mondovi. If you guys are able to get more information, that would be greatly appreciated. There are many of us who are worried that this could be another Celadon incident.
