Israeli carrier ZIM, which has been privately held since 2004, has filed a prospectus ahead of an initial public offering (IPO) on the New York Stock Exchange. The first shipping IPO on Wall Street for years values ZIM at $1.5bn.

The IPO is targeted for the end of January and marks the fourth time the carrier has attempted to list over the past 17 years.
