ZIM unveils new Vietnam-to-Israel/Europe service

ZIM unveils new Vietnam-to-Israel/Europe service

Hanoi: Israel's ZIM Integrated Shipping Service Services Ltd (ZIM) has inaugurated a new shipping service from Vietnam to Israel and Europe.
ZIM's upgraded Asia-Mediterranean-Europe (AME) line will deploy a fleet of 12 times 3,800 TEU vessels calling at Shanghai, Da Chan Bay, the newly included Ho Chi Minh, Port Kalang, Nhava Sheva, Haifa, Ashdod, Felixstowe, Antwerp, Hamburg, Alexandria, Limassol, Haifa, Ashdod, and Colombo, returning to Shanghai, the Vietnam Shipper said.
Previously, Vietnamese shippers had to use third-country transhipment services to meet the growing inter-regional trade.
While Vietnam's ports and infrastructure have attracted criticism for being outdated, the new Cai Mep service underlines the Asian nation's growing economic strength. APM Terminals also manages a facility at Cai Mep, Ho Chi Minh City. [30/09/10]
