The service rotation starting May 2022 will be as follows:
Mersin – Yarimca – Aliaga – Tangier – New York – Norfolk – Savannah – Tangier – Mersin
ZIM executive vice president Cross Atlantic, Rani Ben Yehuda, stated, “The enhanced weekly ZCT Service is part of our continued efforts to introduce agile, efficient and reliable solutions to emerging market needs.”
