Green Cargo’s new direct shuttle between Malmö and Stockholm is now in operation, linking CMP and Norra Hamnen (Northern Harbour) in an attractive new intermodal logistics service.
“The collaboration with Green Cargo in Norra hamnen commenced in early 2014 and gave us access to a large network with numerous destinations”, says Ann-Charlotte Halldén Åkeson, Key Account Manager within CMP. The service and coverage is now being improved even further through a direct shuttle with competitive transit times and flexible handling. This gives the customers access to a comprehensive logistics solution with the port in Malmö as hub.
Green Cargo is Sweden’s most experienced actor within rail logistics. The company offers eco-labelled door-to-door transports in a network that extends throughout Sweden. Green Cargo also reaches thousands of locations on the European continent via partners.
Frequent departures – fast deliveries
The service is based at CMP’s combi-terminal in Norra Hamnen, with daily departures Monday – Thursday and on Sundays. The customers can drop off freight as late as 7 in the evening and have it delivered at 6.30 in Stockholm/Årsta the next morning. For example, Green Cargo currently handles parts of the RoRo traffic that arrives from the continent via Finnlines.
“As we see it, there is also great potential for other companies that have operations in the vicinity of Norra Hamnen, or in other parts of Malmö”, says Ann-Charlotte Halldén-Åkesson. The new direct shuttle is moreover an environmentally-friendly alternative to the many road haulage services between Malmö and Stockholm.
“CMP has both the space and overall capacity in Norra Hamnen to handle combi-traffic effectively”, she concludes. ”In the long term we also feel that the direct shuttle will be an asset for those companies that have now started to establish themselves in the nearby Malmö Industrial Park”.
