Containers

The biggest container terminal in the Øresund Region 

CMP is an important link in the container transport chain. CMP operates container terminals in Copenhagen and Malmö. Both terminals are situated in the heart of the Øresund Region. Containers travel via intercontinental routes to ports like Hamburg, Rotterdam and Bremerhaven, from where they are transferred to smaller feeder ships and sail to CMP. From here, ongoing distribution chains deliver their contents to customers. CMP’s market position is based on:

  • Gantry cranes and equipment according to the latest development in container handling
  • Easy access located next to port entrance
  • Large areas for future expansion
  • Fast operations with a high average productivity
  • Professional and reliable staff

The containers that arrive at CMP mostly contain imported consumer goods destined for the affluent Øresund region, and have long since replaced the wooden boxes and sacks of the past. An effective chain of shipping routes, modern port terminals and distribution by truck or train delivers imported goods to our shops and homes with all the speed and accuracy that we have come to expect.
