    Confronted with tough business environment, ZIM continued to record improvements and to introduce new services to its customers, the company said in its release.

    In September 2018, the Company launched its strategic operational cooperation with the 2M Alliance. According to this cooperation, the Company and the parties of the 2M Alliance (Maersk and MSC) operate together several lines between Asia and the US East-Coast. In January 2019, The Company and the members of the 2M Alliance announced a second strategic cooperation agreement in two additional trades: Asia - East Mediterranean and Asia - American Pacific Northwest.

    Eli Glickman, ZIM President & CEO, said: “During 2018, we have commenced the first phase of our strategic operational cooperation with the 2M Alliance, recently expanded to two additional trades. The agreement enables ZIM to offer better product and service portfolio to our customers, and cope with the volatile freight rates and fuel prices. We were able to achieve improved cost efficiencies while significantly increasing the transported volumes. At the same time, we continue to put our customer service at the center, introducing new services and investing in innovative digital solutions"
