Press Releases 2011

After being named Europe’s Leading Cruise Port for the fourth time in 2011, Copenhagen puts other ports in the shade, reaffirming CMP’s unique position in the global cruise industry.
Ignition interlock devices send a signal that CMP cares for its employees as well as the values they handle in the ports. The devices will be installed gradually over the coming five-year period.
Copenhagen Malmö Port (CMP) is strengthening its environmental profile. The company is recruiting an Environmental Director, who will be responsible for ensuring that the company’s operations are sustainable and developable.
At CMP’s Annual General Meeting on 31 May the Board of Directors approved a dividend payment of SEK 60 million. It was also decided that the holding company, Malmö Hamn AB, will be wound down.
Malmö’s new North Harbour has just been taken into use, and things are starting to take shape.
Between April and October some 770,000 passengers and 200,000 crew members from 115 countries are expected to visit Copenhagen.
Despite generally weak demand, several of CMP’s business areas reported stronger results.
CMP makes pioneering investment to attract Chinese companies to Europe.
During 2010, CMP handled 322,000 cars – an increase of 56 per cent compared with 2009. This is due to the fact that car sales have really picked up in both Scandinavia and Russia. In order to cope with the increase, CMP has started re-employing staff.
CMP is now commencing its move to Norra Hamnen (Northern Harbour). The ferry traffic will be first to transfer, and in mid-May Finnlines’ RoPax ferries will start using the new terminals.
