Zim London - new to us

An empty container ship arrived at Halterm today. Zim London has apparently been shifted from one route to another, starting in Halifax, and so arrived with no containers on board. Its name does not appear on any Zim schedules, so it may be and addition or a substitution.
It has recently been operating between the Mediterranean and western Europe.

Zim London at pier 42 Halterm with empty decks.

Rainy weather greeted the ship, hence the lousy photo, but it does show the deck frames all empty.
Zim London was built as APL London by Koyo Dockyard Co in Mihara, Japan in 2008 for a Zodiac Maritime subsidiary, and placed on a five year charter to APL. On completion of that stint in 2013, it became Zim London. The ship flies the British flag, and measures 71,786 grt, 72,982 dwt, with a container capacity of 6350 TEU, including 500 reefers.
