The Ontario Cannabis Store says its distribution centre is resuming service after a cyberattack on one of its logistics partners caused the provincial pot wholesaler to halt deliveries this week.

President and CEO David Lobo says in a note on the OCS’s website that its distribution centre is in the process of returning to operational status and a small number of deliveries will be made later today.

He says the OCS will work around the clock to transition back to standard service levels and begin with deliveries of orders that were impacted at the time of shut down.

Pot shop owners worry they’ll lose customers if halt on OCS deliveries stretches on

He says orders will be processed in the sequence they were placed on the OCS ordering platform and his organization will provide further information this evening about what retailers can expect during the recovery period.

The OCS announced the Aug. 5 attack on the parent company of its third-party distribution centre, Domain Logistics, on Monday, but said there was no indication OCS systems were targeted or its customers’ information was compromised.

Soon after the cyberattack, pot shops worried their supplies would dwindle and consumers would turn to the illicit market, if the delivery halt continued.
