ZIM is currently deploying 420 new 20f Open-top containers which join its fleet and will increase ZIM's Open-top capacity by about 20%. This addition of new special containers is aimed at enhancing ZIMfs ongoing policy to ensure maximum availability of special equipment to customers, as well as keeping a low average age of the container fleet.
Open Top Containers are suitable for tall or large cargo that cannot be loaded through the container doors, such as machinery, sheet glass, building materials etc.
ZIM operates nearly 600,000 TEUs containers of various types, with a significant portion of special containers. ZIMfs containers are meticulously maintained and match all safety conditions in accordance with International Containers Standards and CSC – Container Safety Convention.
Shmuel Yoskovitz, ZIM VP Logistics, said: gOur vision and strategy call for providing creative solutions for our customers, specifically when unusual requirements occurs. Renewing our fleet of special containers is an important part of this strategy".
