This information was given to us by the dock workers themselves. It has since been verified by many of the Zim customers whom we have been phoning over the last two weeks. Several of them have confirmed that they never received their cargo, that Zim has told them it was going to the Far East, and that they would not get it back again “for some months”. dn7/9/2014
