The ZMP service will join the recently announced ZIM Pacific North (ZPN) service on Asia-PNW route.

On the Asia–East Med/Black Sea trade, the ZMP service will include a direct call to Novorossiysk, Russia.

Port rotation of the ZMP service will be as follows: Port Kelang, Cai Mep, Da Chan Bay, Yantian, Xiamen, Ningbo, Shanghai, Pusan, Vancouver, Pusan, Qingdao, Shanghai, Ningbo, Da Chan Bay, Port Kelang, Ashdod, Haifa, Istanbul, Novorossiysk, Odessa, Istanbul, Haifa, Port Kelang.

Rafi Danieli, ZIM’s CEO, said the upgraded ZIM network is operated mostly independently by the company.
