Israeli shipping line ZIM Integrated Shipping Services will add a second call in New York to its Mediterranean-US east coast ZCA (ZIM Container Service Atlantic) service to complement the existing westbound call.
Zim said the additional port call meant the fixed-day weekly ZCA would offer the best New York to Mediterranean transit times.
The new rotation improves transit times to both West and East Mediterranean, offering a premium service with best-in-the-market transit time from NYC to East Med, while maintaining the well-established port coverage, schedule integrity, stability and reliability of ZCA.
Via ZIM’s Hub in Haifa and our extensive, synchronized feeder network, further connections to major East-Med destinations are available with excellent transit times. The new rotation will provide much better service specifically for refrigerated cargo from NYC to Med destinations.
The service will now call: Haifa, Piraeus, Genova, Tarragona, Halifax, New York, Savannah, Kingston, New York, Tarragona, Ashdod. Rafi Ben Ari, VP Shipping: “This additional enhancement to ZCA offers significant advantages to our customers, strengthening ZCA’s position in the market."
