In addition to providing top quality ocean transportation, ZIM offers a number of unique intermodal solutions in the region, ensuring the safe, swift delivery of goods to remote inland destinations.
ZIM's highly developed office network covers all of Russia's main ports and inland locations, enabling smooth, unrestricted access to all parts of this vast country.
