ZIM new service structure for the Pacific North-West and Asia - Mediterranean Trades
Dear valued ZIM Customer,
ZIM announced a new service structure for the Asia - Pacific North-West and Asia-Mediterranean trades. ZIM will launch ZIM Med Pacific (ZMP), an independent pendulum service, commencing in April, replacing the current structure.
Starting April 2022, ZIM Med Pacific (ZMP), a new service connecting Asia, the East Mediterranean, and the Pacific Northwest, will replace the current structure on these trades, on the following route:
Pusan – Qingdao – Ningbo – Shanghai – South China – S.E Asia Hub – Haifa – Ashdod- Istanbul – Yarimca - S.E Asia Hub – Cai Mep – South China – Yantian – Xiamen – Ningbo – Shanghai – Pusan – Vancouver – Pusan
ZIM Med Pacific (ZMP) is an independent pendulum service, designed to address ZIM customers’ needs on these trades and provide them with reliable and efficient service.
ZMP replaces the current partnership with the 2M alliance partners on the Asia-Med and Pacific North-West trades. The cooperation between ZIM and the 2M on the Asia - US East Coast and Asia – US Gulf trades will be extended, based on slot exchange and vessel sharing agreement, with the present scope of 8 services (subject to finalizing the related documentation and to regulatory approval).
Over the past several months, we have secured the necessary short- and long-term capacity to allow us to meet growing demand and competitively serve our customers. The new structure, operated independently by ZIM, allows for better operational agility, and provides fast and synchronized connections to ZIM’s extensive regional networks in the Mediterranean, Asia and the Pacific.
We will continue to provide our customers the variety and level of service to best serve their needs.
We would like to thank you for your support and we will continue to do our very best for you.
Our sales and customer service teams are at your disposal for any inquiry.
