Zim said it will fine-tune this February its AME service to focus on the growing Asia–East Med/Black Sea trade, and offer an enhanced network of dedicated, synchronized links by trade.
The enhanced AME service will now have a port rotation of Xiamen, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Port Kelang, Nhava Sheva, Mundra, Alexandria, Ashdod, Haifa, Mersin, Haifa, Port Kelang, and back to Xiamen.
The India Sub-Continent-Europe trade will be served on the INE service, rotating among Hamburg, Antwerp, Tilbury, Nhava Sheva, Mundra, and Hamburg.
