Increased depth of water in the container port in Copenhagen

CMP has increased the depth of water in the container port in Copenhagen by a further half metre – from 9.5 metres to 10 metres.  

”Half a metre might not sound like much”, says Jacob Fogh, terminal manager within CMP. ”But in practice it means that larger feeder ships can now dock at CMP and contribute to increased volumes at the container terminal, which is open round the clock.”

Ideal location

CMP is situated centrally in the Öresund Sound and at the threshold to the Baltic region. The geographic position is ideal for a feeder port and for container traffic from Hamburg, Rotterdam and Bremerhaven. Moreover, CMP functions as a logistics hub for the flow of goods to Scandinavia and the countries around the Baltic Sea.  

The container terminal in Copenhagen has three Gantry cranes (capacity 40 – 70 tonnes), 10 straddle carriers (40 tonnes), ten container trucks, ten terminal tractors and four container carriers.
