Israeli shipping line ZIM took delivery of the 15,248 TEU container ship ZIM Mount Vinson on April 3, the last in a series of 10 ships of the same size built by Samsung H.I. for Seaspan.

ZIM has chartered these 10 container ships for 12 years, increasing the total operating capacity to 714,800 TEU, lifting the Haifa-based container carrier past Yang Ming to 9th place in the global carrier rankings.
