Zim Integrated Shipping Services, commonly called ZIM, is a publicly held Israeli international cargo shipping company, founded in 1945 near the end of the second world war. It operates 95 vessels, predominantly charted vessels (it owns just two of its fleet). 

Net income for its first quarter 2021, reported earlier this month, was $589.6 million, compared with an $11.9m loss in the same period last year. It also announced a new long-term chartering agreement with Seaspan for 10 green LNG-fuelled vessels - part of a wider plan to reduce carbon emissions.
