President & CEO Rafi Danieli: we are going through a process of change and improvement, upgrading and further developing ZIM’s level of service worldwide
ZIM Integrated Shipping Services Ltd celebrated last week its 65th anniversary. For the occasion, the company's President & CEO Rafi Danieli, issued a press release: "ZIM’s history is rich and inspiring. ZIM set sail all those years ago with one small passenger ship, and operated small cargo ships in the Mediterranean basin. Later ZIM developed an impressive fleet of specialized ships, modern for their time, and expanded its scope of activities, reaching more destinations and opening agencies around the world.
In the 1970’s, ZIM was among the world’s pioneers in container shipping, introducing ZIM Container Service - ZCS, a service that was first of its kind, set high standards of service, and continues to operate along the same basic outline to this day. ZIM gradually expanded and grew, but most importantly, adapted to a rapidly changing world. ZIM was early to identify global trends and develop services in growing markets around the globe, establishing hundreds of agencies and representative offices.
Throughout the years, ZIM always attributed supreme importance to its relations with its customers. We strived to add to our global reach a measure of personal touch, to understand our customers’ unique needs and to walk the extra mile in order to fulfill their requirements. Our aim has always been to develop long-term relations with our customers, based on trust and reliability.
Today, we are going through a process of change and improvement, upgrading and further developing ZIM’s level of service worldwide. The vision and determination of ZIM people, who laid the foundations to the company, can inspire us to look forward to the future with pride and confidence. Today, we wanted to share these sentiments with you, and to thank you for your support and cooperation."
