Geneva-based Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) and Israeli shipowner Zim Integrated Shipping Services (ZIM) have decided to jointly offer a new Black Sea service.
The companies said that the joint Black Sea service would be introduced in an effort to meet the agricultural season demand.
Scheduled to commence in November, the service will operate at the following rotation: Alexandria – Ashdod – Novorossiysk – Alexandria.
The weekly service will feature two vessels that will operate on a fixed Ashdod Friday departure.
Israel’s shipping firm said that the new service would also offer improved transit times.
