ZIM Integrated Shipping Services (ZIM) has announced a new service connecting major ports in Southeast Asia and Australia.
The new Thailand Fremantle Express (TFX) will expand ZIM’s coverage of the Australian market in a bid to provide an efficient and reliable solution for customers.
The TFX rotation will begin in Ho Chi Minh and offer direct shipping between Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam and Fremantle with a wider coverage of Southeast Asia markets via Port Klang and Laem Chabang.
The rotation will be the following:
Ho Chi Minh – Laem Chabang – Port Klang – Sydney – Melbourne – Fremantle – Port Klang – Ho Chi Minh.
Additionally, customers will have a fast connection to New Zealand via ZIM’s N2A service when they reach Sydney.
“Consistent with ZIM’s signature agile approach, we continuously strive to improve our network for the benefit of our customers,” said Danny Hoffmann, EVP Intra Asia BU at ZIM.
“This new expanded product in Oceania will offer customers wider port coverage in the region while enjoying ZIM’s exceptional and personal customer services”.
ZIM posted a net income of $4.21 billion in the first three quarters of last year, surpassing 2021’s result of $2.94 billion.
Total revenues for the first nine months of 2022 hit $10.37 billion driven by elevated freight rates.
