An order of approximately 1,900 40-foot, high-cube reefer containers is planned to be deployed during 2016. The new, environmentally friendly containers were specifically designed to accommodate the ZIMonitor service and received a special prefix: ZMOU.

ZIM has partnered with Teva Pharmaceutical Industries, a global pharmaceutical company, on a successful pilot of the ZIMonitor service that addressed Teva’s commitment to the quality of its products and its dedication to meet customer requirements. Upon completion of the pilot, ZIMonitor quickly gained popularity among ZIM’s customer base.

ZIMonitor is designed to comply with Good Distribution Practice (GDP) guidelines, which are applicable to the pharmaceutical industry. It also aims to provide ongoing data flow, alerts, and automatic reports, along with a 24/7 dedicated and professional response team.

The online monitoring service is suited for various types of valuable or sensitive cargo such as: pharmaceuticals; medical lab equipment; aviation products; perishable food; wines and other alcoholic beverages; seeds; electronics; art work and antiques; as well as hazardous or IMDG code goods.
