Zim gets new reefers

Zim Israel Navigation Co. said it will add 200 new refrigerated containers for its main line services in the coming weeks.

The Haifa-based carrier said the move comes amid growing demand for transportation of refrigerated and chilled products in the world market.

Zim is deploying 13 new container vessels over the next two years, each equipped with 330 reefer plugs. Six of the ships are already operating in Zim's global services, and seven will be delivered during 2004-05.
