August 29, 2018 - ZIM has announced that starting September, ZIM India-Med Express Line (IMX) will have a new rotation, with significantly faster transit time, making the fastest on the trade.

In order to improve our service to customers and cater for market needs, ZIM will introduce changes to IMX service, as follows: the line will operate 5 vessels, and the round-trip will be shortened to 35 days. The new rotation will commence in Colombo, Sri-Lanka, followed by Nhava-Sheva and Mundra, followed by East Mediterranean ports. Transit time to East Med ports will be reduced significantly, in some ports by a week to 10 days. 

Rani Ben-Yehuda, ZIM’s EVP Cross Suez and Atlanti BU, said: “ZIM now offers the fastest and most reliable service between the Indian sub-continent and the Easter Mediterranean. We continue to upgrade and improve our services, as part of ZIM vision and our customer-oriented approach.”
