Maher Terminals welcomes 10,000 TEUs ZIM ANTWERP
10,000 TEUs ZIM ANTWERP passed under the elevated Bayonne Bridge in New York, the first of such size to call Maher terminals. Upon arrival, an official ceremony took place on board the ZIM ANTWERP with the participation of Port Authority of NY & NJ, Maher terminals and ZIM USA representatives headed by President George Goldman, to mark the historic passage. ZIM Antwerp’s captain received a plaque commemorating the event.
ZIM ANTWERP arrived in New York after calling ports in China, crossing the new Panama Canal and calling the US ports of Savannah, Charleston and Norfolk. It will head next to Halifax before returning to Asia. The ZIM ANTWERP sails the ZIM Container Service Pacific (ZCP), one of ZIM's flagship lines, recently upgraded as part of the company's renewed network. It is part of ZIM’s global strategy to operate as an independent company, focusing on trade routes where it has competitive advantages.
