Her recent sailing is somewhat odd. She spent 7 days in Tuxpan Mexico, then took 16 days to sail to Savannah. She spent 2 days there before sailing for St John's NFLD. She spent 13 hours there, then sailed for Halifax, Took Bunkers and sailed.
Update: I have been told (in a comment below) that she stopped in St. John's, NL due to contaminated fuel. Once she offloaded it and made repairs, the crew realized they did not have enough fuel to continue the trip. They had to revert to Halifax to refuel before continuing trip across to Europe.

ZIM Virgina arrived over the Noon hour and backed into Pier 42. Sailing from Jamaica, she worked her way up the East Coast, and from Halifax, will go back to Jamaica, then take the Panama Canal for Russia.
As this is a westbound leg, She is very lightly loaded.
