Zim is pleased to announce that it is significantly widening its service coverage in the Australia-New Zealand region by launching the New Zealand to Australia Service (N2A).
Melbourne – Sydney – Auckland – Tauranga – Melbourne,
Maiden call was on April 2nd by GSL Africa calling Auckland.
Connecting with both the China Australia Express (CAX) and the China to Australia service (C2A) at Sydney, this new and fast service will offer customers a 16 days' transit time from Shanghai to Auckland and a 15 days' transit time from Yantian to Auckland.
The service will deploy 2X1100 TEU vessels with extensive plugs for refrigerated cargo. Its customers will have at their service a fleet of new, advanced reefer units fitted with the ZIMonitor system designed to constantly monitor the units to prevent damage.

I am sure this new service will provide a solution for our customers’ growing needs in this trade. We see great opportunity in the Australia and New Zealand trade and are confident that our unique Z Factor and innovative yet personal approach will be appreciated and valued by customers in this market.”
