A Zim Asia-Mediterranean service has added an eastbound call at Da Chan Bay, one of the terminal complexes that make up the Port of Shenzhen.
Zim’s standalone EMX service will now call Da Chan Bay in both directions, Da Chan Bay officials said Tuesday.
The service has a revised rotation of Busan, Shanghai, Ningbo, Da Chan Bay, Port Kelang, Suez Canal, Haifa, Ambarli-ist, Odessa, Novorossiysk, Ambarli-ist, Haifa, Suez Canal, Colombo, Port Kelang, Da Chan Bay, and Busan.
