Foreign press reports indicate that Zim Integrated Shipping Services Ltd. announced last week that a decision had been made to add the port of Hong Kong to its recently inaugurated Asia/North Europe East-West Express Service (EWX).
According to the press reports the fully Cellular Container vessel, TEU 4,250 "Zim Genova" is scheduled to make the maiden call at Hong Kong port on the EWX service when it departs the Far East port on April 19.
