ZIM Shekou

 The veteran ZIM Shekou arrived this morning in daylight for a change. Most ships arriving at PSA Halifax Hub's South End Terminal arrive earlier so as to align with the longshore employees shift start. Ship operators also try to complete the ship's cargo work within the normal shift to avoid overtime labour charges.

ZIM Shekou has been a regular caller in Halifax since 2018 on ZIM's ZCA service from the Mediterranean. That service also has slots for HAPAG-Lloyd's AU7 route. Built in 2007 by Dalian Shipbuilding Industry Co at their number 2 yard, ZIM Shekou is a 39,906 gt, 50,629 dwt ship with a capacity of 4250 TEU.

Due to those customary early arrivals I rarely get to see the ship (ot take a picture.)
