Israeli container carrier Zim Integrated Shipping Services (ZIM) is to add the second Asia – Pacific North West service in April 2017 if the company gets an all-clear from the US Federal Maritime Commission (FMC).

The new service will be named Zim Pacific North (ZPN) and will have the following rotation: Hong Kong – Yantian (China) – Kaohsiung (Taiwan) – Shanghai (China) – Pusan (South Korea) – Tacoma (USA) – Vancouver (Canada)– Pusan – Kwangyang (South Korea) – Kaohsiung – Hong Kong.

ZIM did not indicate if the latest service is in any way related to the services to be launched by THE Alliance in April 2017.

The new service is said to widen ZIM’s ports scope on the Pacific North West trade, offering gateways to US and Canada inland destinations and direct calls in Kaohsiung, Kwangyang and Tacoma.

ZPN service is joining the company’s Asia – Pacific North West service that was announced last month, fully operated by ZIM vessels, with the following rotation:

Port Kelang (Malaysia) – Cai Mep (Vietnam) – Da Chan Bay – Yantian – Xiamen – Ningbo – Shanghai (China) – Pusan – Vancouver – Pusan – Qingdao (China) – Shanghai – Ningbo – Da Chan Bay – Port Kelang.
