ZIM Djibouti, TEU 10,062 containership, was built by Hyundai SAMHO Shipyards in South Korea, Idan Oder: a major step forward for the company's fleet
 
ZIM Integrated Shipping Services received its second Mega Vessel, ZIM Djibouti.
The TEU 10,062 containership is ZIM’s largest vessel, twice the size of its current flagship.


The arrival comes one week after ZIM received its first Mega Vessel, the TEU 8,400 ZIM Los Angeles.
 
Both vessels will serve in partnership with the Grand Alliance serving the Pacific Northwest Service (PNX) loop from East Asia to West Coast US and Canada.
 
Idan Ofer, Chairman of ZIM, said: "The world economy is changing, in particular the shipping market, and when the economic crisis is over we must be ready with the appropriate fleet to meet the world demand”.
 
ZIM's CEO, Rafi Danieli, said: "The new mega vessels are a major step forward for the company's fleet. They are significantly larger than the other ships we own and, as they can carry more containers, they are considerably more efficient. The delivery of the new vessels will lay the foundation to positioning ZIM as a leading company in the years to come”.
 
Danieli added: "We have a strong partnership with the Grand Alliance. The introduction of the two new vessels will be the eighth cooperation agreement we have with the Alliance. This partnership with the Grand Alliance was enabled based on the company's new building plan, and is an important strategic milestone in the company's stabilization and recovery plan”.
 
The mega vessels, built by Hyundai SAMHO Shipyards in South Korea, will enable ZIM to continue to offer weekly services on the route, whilst expanding the coverage by calling at additional ports through Asia and North America.
 
ZIM Djibouti's particulars:
- Vessel size:  10,062 TEU
- Vessel deadweight: 116,440 tons
- Quantity of steel used: 37,900 tons
- Total refrigerated container capacity: 800 FEU (600 on deck and 200 in holds)
- Speed of vessel: 25.8 knots
