A million Toyotas have passed through the port

On Monday 31 January we celebrated the fact that one million Toyota cars have passed through CMP.

From the start in 2003 until today one million car cars have passed through CMP. Or, if you want to be precise, it’s actually slightly more than 1.1 million.

“Toyota is a big and important car customer for us, so it is of course a great joy to be able to celebrate this,” Lennart Petterson, Deputy CEO of CMP, says.

Toyota’s car terminal in Malmö’s Middle Port hosted the celebrations, which, in addition CMP, were attended by Malmö’s Consul-General for Japan, Leif Almö, Hasting and Skandiatransport.

Peter Stern is the Site Manager for Toyota:

“It is the fact that we have a good exchange with the companies around us that has made it possible to handle so many cars,” he says.

The cars, which arrive from different parts of Europe and from Japan, are transported on to other destinations, mainly in Russia and Kazakhstan. Some of them also go the Scandinavian countries, Finland and the Baltic states. On Monday a ship arrived from Nagoya in Japan carrying 2,700 Toyota cars.

With no less than 255,000 m2 at its disposal, Toyota is the car make with by far the largest number of cars in the port.
