War Risk Premium Charge - Update
ZIM continues its operations to and from Israel and is accepting bookings as always.
Despite the war situation in Israel, all local terminals in Ashdod, Haifa and Eilat are functioning as usual, with some limitations on DG cargo that will be handled by our professional teams on a case-by-case basis.
Service interruptions may occur on short notice due to safety guidelines dictated by Israeli authorities. In such cases, we will provide additional updates.
Considering the ongoing war situation, as well as the additional war risk insurance premium insurers imposed on all vessels calling Israeli ports, ZIM is obligated to continue paying this premium to maintain service to and from Israel.
