    ZIM posts 2019 results

    Confronted with challenging business environment, ZIM continued to improve its performance and to expand its global network to its customers, the company said in its release.

    In September 2018, the Company launched its strategic operational cooperation with the “2M” Alliance (Maersk and MSC), in several lines between Asia and the US East-Coast. During 2019 the cooperation was expanded in three additional trades: Asia - East Mediterranean, Asia - American Pacific Northwest and the Asia - US Gulf. These cooperation agreements enable ZIM to provide its customers with improved product portfolio, larger port coverage and better transit time, while generating cost efficiencies.

    Eli Glickman, ZIM President & CEO, said: “2019 has been a challenging year for the industry which had to cope with the escalation of the US-China trade war whilst simultaneously getting itself ready for the IMO 2020 new regulation enforcement. Despite those difficult market conditions, we delivered a strong operational and financial performance with better EBIT margin contribution than most of our peers. We also accelerated the deleveraging of our balance sheet.

    This clearly indicates that our strategy proves to be fruitful and effective and we intend to continue the path we initiated. We remain committed to our vision and values, focusing on providing exceptional service levels to customers, as reflected in a recent independent survey, ranking ZIM as the best performing global carrier in 2019 in Schedule Reliability. We continue to develop and implement lead innovative solutions, and we remain agile and ready to respond fast to new challenges. I’m convinced that these values will enable us to overcome the current Corona virus crisis, which we all hope will be contained soon".
