ZIM adds Trieste port to its Far East network
The Israeli container carrier ZIM has added the port of Trieste in Italy to the rotation of the company’s two services.
From 19 May, ZIM has launched a new container service, the Adriatic Express Service (ADX), which will connect Trieste with Israel (Ashdod) and Turkey (Aliaga) on a weekly basis, focusing on the transport of fresh goods in reefer containers with competitive transit time.
Additionally, the Haifa-based shipping line will call at the Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG’s Italian multi-purpose terminal “Piattaforma Logistica Trieste” (HHLA PLT Italy) on the new RoRo-service Vehicle Carrier Service 1 (VE1), which will stop at Trieste once a month.
On 13 May, Viking Sea was the first ship to launch this service at HHLA PLT Italy. The ship mainly carried new emission-free electric cars destined to be imported from China to Europe.
