Dry Bulk

Large dry bulk terminals in Sweden and Denmark

CMP has the largest dry bulk terminals in Western Sweden and Eastern Denmark. Import and export of bulk products are mainly oriented towards the regional market, but some products are also handled for transit. Our market position is based on:

  • Central location in the Øresund Region with almost four million consumers
  • Good possibilities to handle bulk for transit
  • Quays, terminals and available storage areas
  • Easy access by road or rail to hinterland
  • Modern facilities with water depth for large bulk carriers
  • Investment in the new infrastructure and equipment
  • Close co-operation with partners and sub-suppliers
  • Well-trained and committed staff

Each terminal in Copenhagen and Malmö has its own profile and specialization.
