HAIFA-headquartered, ZIM of Israel, one of the world's largest shipping container companies, has selected Orange Business Services to rationalize further its global Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) network in a cost-cutting move.

Under a multiple-year contract, the future-ready network will include optimized routing, guaranteed business continuity and backup solutions, as well as a unified communications and cloud computing services-ready platform and is underpinned by SLAs adapted by site, Market Watch reported.

ZIM will use the network system to support its more than 100 vessels, carrying two million containers yearly, and 6,000 employees serving ports of call in more than 120 countries.

"The Orange global MPLS network is delivering significant benefits to ZIM and is supporting its business worldwide," said Helmut Reisinger, senior vice president, Orange Business Services Europe. "For ZIM, we are providing a global network for its mission-critical sites that provides optimized value for money and meets the customer's goal of reducing network management costs. This extremely reliable network improves round-trip delay and ensures superior site availability, both very important benefits for a leader in the shipping industry."
