ZIM introducing new Central America-Caribbean service

ZIM is introducing a new service connecting Mexico, Caribbean and Central America from the second half of August.

The new network named New Central America-Caribbean Service (CCS) will operate three ships on a weekly, fixed day service.

The port rotation will be Veracruz, Altamira, P. Cortes, Santo Tomas, Kingston, Rio Haina, San Juan, Kingston, and back to Veracruz.

ZIM said CCS will offer competitive transit time from Central America to Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico, as well as improve the dedicated fixed day service from Mexico to Caribbean and Central America markets.

“The new CCS service joins our extensive portfolio of services in Central America and the Caribbean, connected and synchronised with ZIM’s major global trades including the Cross Atlantic and transpacific services,” ZIM stated.
