ZIM announces Q2 2019 results

Confronted with tough business environment, ZIM continued to record improvements and to expand its global network to its customers, the company said in its release.

In September 2018, the Company launched its strategic operational cooperation with the “2M” Alliance (Maersk and MSC), in several lines between Asia and the US East-Coast. During the first quarter of 2019 the cooperation was expanded in two additional trades: Asia - East Mediterranean and Asia - American Pacific Northwest. During the second quarter of 2019, it was agreed between ZIM and the 2M Alliance to further expand the cooperation to the Asia - US Gulf trade. Theses cooperation agreements enable ZIM to provide its customers with improved product portfolio, larger port coverage and better transit time, while generating cost efficiencies.
