ZIM Announces Updates to its “Asia – Pacific North-West” and “Asia – East Med” Service Structures

ZIM has shared updates to its previous announcement regarding the new Asia – Pacific North-West and Asia – East Mediterranean services.

Citing the ongoing global port congestions, and with an aim to secure the highest service reliability possible, ZIM will be operating two separate loop services on these trades:

The Asia-Pacific North-West trade will be served via a new loop, the ZIM North Pacific (ZNP) with the following port rotation: Kaohsiung – Yantian – Ningbo – Shanghai – Pusan – Vancouver – Pusan – Kaohsiung


The Asia-East Mediterranean trade will also be served via a new loop, the ZIM Med Premium Service (ZMP) with the following port rotation: Pusan – Qingdao- Ningbo – Shanghai – Da Chan Bay – Port Kelang – Haifa – Ashdod – Istanbul – Yarimca – Port Kelang – Da Chan Bay – Xiamen – Pusan


Both services are scheduled to commence in April and will be solely operated by ZIM thereby providing significant advantages to ZIM customers, and ensuring high service levels.
