International journal awards CMP prize for being trendsetter

The Baltic Transport Journal has awarded CMP a prize for its investment in Malmö's North Port.

"We've looked at what we consider the most important factors with regard to the development of transport and logistics around the Baltic during 2011," says Piotr Trusiewicz, the journal's editor-in-chief. He recently visited the port to personally hand over the prize of a plate made of wood and metal and inscribed 'The Baltic Trendsetters Club 2011 Certificate'.

The reasons are as follows: 'Copenhagen Malmö Port AB – for opening North Port in Malmö, raising the port's handling potential and diverting cargo away from the city'.
