Radiant Logistics Canada Suffers Ransomware Attack


Radiant Logistics, a Seattle-based international freight technology company, faced a ransomware attack that disrupted its Canadian operations. The incident was detected on March 14, 2024, impacting the company's services in Canada. With an annual revenue of approximately $1 billion, Radiant Logistics Cadada specializes in warehouse and distribution, customs brokerage, order fulfillment, and inventory management.

The company serves as a crucial logistics partner for domestic and international freight companies, manufacturers, distributors, and retailers. Radiant Logistics announced the expansion of its Service By Air ("SBA") network with a new location in San Antonio, Texas, on March 21, 2024.

Impact of the Attack

The ransomware attack on Radiant Logistics Canada resulted in service delays for customers in Canada. However, the company assured that the issues would be resolved within the next week. Fortunately, the incident did not have a significant impact on the company's overall operations or financial conditions.

This is not the first time Radiant Logistics has faced cybersecurity challenges. In September 2022, the company reported a data breach to the Montana Attorney General due to unauthorized access to certain files on its network. While the specific compromised data remains undisclosed, the company complied with state regulations by sending data breach notifications to affected parties.

Response and Investigation

Ransomware attacks on companies involved in critical infrastructure, such as logistics and transportation, have become a growing concern for cybersecurity experts. In recent years, ransomware gangs have targeted companies like Americold and Sysco, causing significant disruptions for manufacturers.

Radiant Logistics has not yet addressed the group responsible for the attack on its Canadian operations. The company has enlisted the help of cybersecurity and forensics professionals to assess, contain, and remediate the incident effectively.


Recent Ransomware Attacks

The Recent Ransomware Attacks (RRA) site acts as a watchtower, providing you with near real-time ransomware tracking of attacks, groups and their victims. Given threat actors’ overarching, lucrative success so far, ransomware attacks have become the most ubiquitous, and financially and informationally impactful cyber threat to businesses and organizations today.

The site’s data is generated based on hosting choices of real-world threat actors, and a handful of other trackers. While sanitization efforts have been taken, we cannot guarantee 100% accuracy of the data. Attack updates will be made as source data is reported by reputable sources. By viewing, accessing, or using RRA you acknowledge you are doing so at your own risk.
