ZIM to enhance its Greece-Turkey Service (TGX) next year
ZIM will introduce changes to its TGX (Greece-Turkey Service) as of January 2018, the shipping company said in a media release.
The changes are the following:
TGX new rotation:
Haifa - Ashdod – Iskenderun - Antalya - Istanbul Ambarli - Izmit - Gemlik - Istanbul Ambarli - Piraeus - Izmir - Haifa
Iskenderun port is added to TGX rotation
Thessaloniki cargo will now be served by ZMP service, via Istanbul to Haifa, with a total transit time of 7 days and much improved schedule reliability
Transit time from Piraeus to Israel will be shortened to 4 days (instead of current 11 days)
The change is implemented as part of ZIM’s strategy to create synergy with our mainliners through fast connections in Turkish ports. The new rotation is also aimed to overcome congestion problems in Thessaloniki and better serve the Greek market.
The change is part of ZIM's ongoing efforts to expand coverage in the region and improve overall service levels to customers.
