ZIM offers services in Kingston as well as in Montego Bay (through transshipment via Kingston). Caribstar Shipping, a fully-owned subsidiary, is ZIM's agent in Jamaica, and has operated in this capacity for 40 years. ZIM is the only major shipping line that has established unbroken service to the Port of Kingston, supporting Jamaican businesses and citizens by taking Jamaican exports out into the world and bringing raw materials and consumer goods to this island without fail for decades.
ZIM thrives on the personal relationships it has developed in Jamaica, and offers tailor-made solutions to all of its clients over the long term. Not simply a shipping company, ZIM is part of the magnificent history of the Port of Kingston, and has played a significant role in its growth and development.
As a hub for our ZCS, ZCA, and ZCP global services, Jamaica is ZIM's second largest base, rivaled only by its headquarters in Haifa, Israel. These three services have been realigned to offer improved transit times between Jamaica and other major destinations, offering better connections to the worldwide network via Jamaica. ZIM's relationship with Jamaica, the service it provides to Jamaicans, and its base at the Port of Kingston are part of the company's proud legacy.
