CMP is taking part in Almedalen 2016

During Almedalen week, politicians, the business world, municipalities and the media gather for a few intensive days in Visby on Gotland. CMP is arranging two seminars plus a joint get-together with Region Gotland.

The first seminar is focused on the fact that actors in the transport market must be able to compete and operate under the same conditions. This is not currently the case. Unfortunately, the administrative work for shipping is considerably more cumbersome than for road transport, for example.

”Shipping that goes between two ports, for example within the EU, requires extensive and complicated administrative procedures which involve more intermediaries. This in itself creates an unnecessary work load, inefficiency and productivity losses”, says Johan Röstin, CEO of Copenhagen Malmö Port AB.

The seminar will be led by Catarina Rolfsdotter-Jansson. Besides Johan Röstin, CEO of CMP, the panel will include Maria Ågren, Director General of the Swedish Transport Agency, Jan Kilström, CEO Green Cargo, Peter Hesslin, CEO DHL Freight Nordic & UK, Håkan Nilsson, CEO, Bring Frigo, Boriana Åberg, member of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Transport and Communications, and Rikard Larsson, deputy member of the same Committee.

CMP is arranging an additional seminar where the focus will be on the significance of what are called Core Ports, i.e. the main ports designated by the EU. There are five Core Ports in Sweden. The ports play a major role in the development of trade and industry, but are also important hubs in both the national and international transport system.

”We will be discussing the ports’ significance at the seminar, but also what is required to enable us to continue contributing to and developing the European transport network. For example, legislation and issues pertaining to infrastructure often extend to the Swedish border. To achieve effective and sustainable transport systems, we have to cooperate across borders”, Johan Röstin says.

Besides Johan Röstin, the seminar will include, Johan Castwall, CEO, Ports of Stockholm, Henrik Vuorinen, CEO, Luleå Port, Magnus Kårestedt, CEO, Port of Gothenburg, Tommy Halén, CEO, Trelleborg Port, together with Per Bondemark, Chairman of the Swedish Shippers’ Council, Karin Svensson-Smith, Chair of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Transport and Communications and Boriana Åberg, member of the same Committee.

CMP’s seminars will take place as follows: Tuesday 5 July at 12.00 – 13.00:   How are we going to establish equal conditions in the transport market? Wednesday 6 July at 14.45 – 15.45: How can the ports contribute to making their cities and the European transport system more effective?
Both the seminars will be held in Öresundshuset, Hästgatan 1, Visby.
