The Knesset Economics Committee on Tuesday called upon the government to immediately take action in order to ensure the survival and continuation of the existence of the Eilat port following Zim Integrated Shipping Services Ltd.'s decision to reduce container shipping. The plea follows the recent announcement of plans by Zim to move its container line from Eilat to Djibouti at the southern tip of the Red Sea, and to Ashdod and Haifa. Fearing the move could cause lay-offs, Eilat port workers disrupted the unloading of Zim ships in recent weeks.
