ZIM Shipping Lines is today one of the top 20 shipping companies in the world and it is based in Israel. It’s origins were in the 1940’s just prior to the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948. The boats were initially used to transport new immigrants to the growing State of Israel. In the 1950’s ZIM acquired more vessels that were used for passengers as well as transporting cargo. In this image we see the image of a woman on a cruise with the line " A Sunfilled Sea Vacation" under her. The ZIM line was promoting its cruise experience and its destinations in Europe and the United States.
