Car terminal as big as 200 football pitches

The part of the port in Malmö that CMP uses solely for cars is 950,000 square metres in size. This is equivalent to an area as big as almost 200 football pitches!

There is room for no less than 53,000 cars at the same time – if these cars were placed in a line one after the other starting in Malmö and heading northwards, the last car would be in Göteborg, 270 km away.

”No other port in the Nordic region comes close to this enormous area”, observes Björn Larsson, Terminal Manager at CMP.

The huge fleet of cars in Frihamnen in Malmö is an impressive sight, with shiny cars in neat rows. A large number of car makes are delivered via CMP; Toyota, Lexus, Honda, Citroën, Peugeot, Subaru, Ford, Mercedes-Benz, Mitsubishi, Suzuki, Mazda, Iveco and Isuzu. Having been shipped from countries in Europe, South Africa, the USA, Thailand and Japan, and making a stopover in Malmö, the cars are then transported onward to car dealers throughout Sweden as well as Denmark, Norway, Finland, the Baltic states and Russia.

CMP’s development in recent years into an important logistics centre for new cars has several reasons; the Öresund bridge with its flexible transport options is an important factor, along with Malmö/Copenhagen’s strategic location in relation to the rest of the Nordic region and Russia and the Baltic markets.
