Israeli carrier ZIM Integrated Shipping Services Ltd. (ZIM) has expanded in Trieste, Italy with two of its Ro-Ro and container services.

The Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG (HHLA) Italian multi-purpose terminal Piattaforma Logistica Trieste (HHLA PLT Italy) welcomed ZIM’s Ro-Ro service Vehicle Carrier Service 1 (VE1) on 13 May. The Viking Sea vessel was the first to make the call carrying emission-free cars to be imported from China to Europe.

On 19 May, ZIM also started a new container service at HHLA PLT Italy. The Adriatic Express Service (ADX) will now connect Trieste with Ashdod (Israel) and Aliaga (Turkey) on a weekly basis. The service focuses on transport of fresh goods in refeer containers.
