Zim Integrated Shipping Services has introduced a new weekly service, the Caribbean Gulf Express, to the Port of New Orleans’ Napoleon Avenue Container Terminal.
The CGX service, which employs five container ships, connects to Caucedo, Dominican Republic; Altamira and Veracruz, Mexico; and Kingston, Jamaica. It also serves all major trade routes, including Asia, through the Kingston hub. New Orleans Terminal is the terminal operator for Zim at the Napoleon Avenue Container Terminal.
“Our CGX service is the solution for this market’s needs for a variety of customers, especially refrigerated cargo and special project cargo,” said Lea Bogatch-Genossar, president of Zim’s Americas, Canada and Caribbean area, in a written statement.
“We are thrilled to welcome Zim to the Port of New Orleans,” added Gary LaGrange, the Port of New Orleans’ president and CEO. “This service will enhance options for shippers and importers not only for Central America and the Caribbean markets, but via Zim’s global network.”
