Northern Harbour handles more containers per arrival

The arrival of Unifeeder’s container ship Ceres at 6 a.m. on 21 September marks the actual premiere of CMP’s container activities in Malmö’s recently inaugurated Northern Harbour.
 
“We have put a lot of time into training our crane operators in using the new gantry crane, which is significantly faster than the one in the old container port, and we will be using the first few arrivals to establish a routine. Faster cranes will enable us to unload and load more containers in the time set aside by the shipping companies,” Claus Ellemann-Jensen, COO Port and Terminal Operations at CMP, says.

The faster turnaround for container ships and the higher capacity available in the Northern Harbour are key competitive assets in the effort to improve productivity and thereby attract larger volumes to Malmö.
“If Unifeeder has set aside ten hours to lie in port, we can now offer to take a much greater load in the same time in Malmö than we were able to previously.”

“We also have plenty of space and, while other ports in the region are suffering from congestion, we are able to offer additional capacity, which, coupled with our very competitive storage rates, will enable us to attract even more customers to Malmö, as we have in the Port of Copenhagen, where the big container lines CMA CGM and Maersk are now sailing with their own ships,” Claus Ellemann-Jensen says.
