ZIM concludes network restructuring

Israeli carrier ZIM has unveiled the final phase of its restructured network.

Commencing in April, the ZIM MED PACIFIC (ZMP) will serve both the Asia-PNW trade and the Asia – East-Med/Black Sea trades. The service will deploy fifteen 4,500 teu vessels.

Additionally, ZIM is launching a new India – East-Med/Black Sea string, India Med Express (IMX). The carrier has also signed a deal with a subsidiary of Allcargo Logistics Limited, to provide logistics services in India to its customers

ZIM CEO Rafi Danieli commented: “The upgraded ZIM network, mostly operated independently by ZIM, allows for broad operational and commercial flexibility and first-rate service levels to our customers. ZIM’s focus on customer service will be further enhanced in the framework of this improved structure.”
