Zim to increase shipping activity at Haifa port

Zim Integrated Shipping Services Ltd. has agreed to increase traffic to the Haifa port despite ongoing missile strikes by the Hizbullah in the area.

As activity at the Haifa port has been reopened, the Manufacturers’ Association of Israel has called upon Zim, which is controlled by the Israel Corporation, to increase shipping capacity to Israeli industry.

Zvi Plada, chairman of the haulage division at the Manufacturers’ Association said Doron Goder, CEO of Zim, had agreed to add at least two additional ships a day to Haifa. Currently, Zim operates four to four ships a day to the Haifa port.
