ZIM is coming to Jacksonville

Zim Integrated Shipping Services, the 11th largest ocean carrier in the world, is adding service to Jacksonville. The Israel-based company will call Jaxport as the vessel operator for 2M, one of the four largest vessel-sharing alliances in the world. The new service will bring more containers from North Asia through Jaxport, which has placed an emphasis on Asian container imports, netting average annual growth of 21 percent over the last five years.

For Jaxport, Zim's arrival further diversifies its ocean carriers and adds momentum to its growing container business. Container volumes year-to-date are up 28 percent compared to last year, and the volumes that went through Jaxport in July and August were the highest of any July and August in the port authority's history. Its existing ocean carriers also increased their average capacity at Jaxport by almost 13 percent in August.
