More electric buses via CMP

The Chinese company BYD has supplied further electric buses to the Swedish market. This expands its collaboration with CMP, which unloaded the buses at its vehicle terminal. Interest in electric buses is growing, and many Swedish cities are now focusing on completely fossil-free transportation.

Electric buses are being tested in local traffic in cities throughout Sweden.  In autumn 2015, BYD delivered buses to Eskilstuna and Ängelholm. Another delivery was made recently. These buses will also be put into service in Ängelholm. The town has taken the decision that its own transport services will be fossil-free by 2021.

Largest in vehicle transportation
As previously, the buses from BYD were unloaded at CMP in Malmö, which is Scandinavia’s largest vehicle port.

“It is positive for us that interest in electric buses is growing. We are specialists in transporting vehicles, as well as heavier vehicles in the high and heavy segment”, says Johan Röstin, CEO of CMP. “Another competitive advantage is the port’s strategic location, which makes it quick and easy to transport the buses onward to their final destination”.

Wide range
BYD is the world’s largest supplier of electric-powered vehicles. In 2015 the company’s market share grew to 11%. BYD’s long-term strategy is to be able to offer electric-powered options for the majority of vehicle types, for example, private cars, taxis and lorries, as well as work vehicles used at airports, in warehouses, for mining operations and in ports.

“The agreement between our two companies is also based on the fact that we will be marketing each other’s products and services. It opens up interesting possibilities, particularly considering that BYD has a green profile and a number of products based on advanced environmentally technology”, says Johan Röstin.
