Honda – an old customer returns

Since spring this year Honda cars have been arriving by ship directly to the port in Malmö. Previously they arrived to CMP on lorries via Gothenburg.

“UECC sails to Malmö each week carrying Honda cars, with an annual volume of 5,000 cars,” Bart Steijaert, Business Area Manager at CMP, says.

The cars are manufactured in Swindon in the UK and shipped out of Southampton.

“We now have all volumes for Honda for both Sweden and Denmark,” Bart Steijaert says.

Honda has about 1.5 per cent of the Swedish car market.

“Our experience is that damage rates are lower when the cars arrive by ship rather than by lorry,” Fredrik Tevin Ivarsson, Site Manager at AB Skandiatransport, says. “And it’s also easier to handle large ship loads rather than lots of lorries.”

AB Skandiatransport provides delivery service for all cars destined for Sweden. They also provide other services, such as installing engine heaters, striping and polishing.
