CMP receives electric buses in Malmö

Last weekend, the first electricity-powered buses from Chinese BYD were unloaded at CMP's vehicle terminal in Malmö. The deliveries are the result of cooperation between CMP and BYD that was initiated earlier this year.

 CMP has been working for a long time to position the ports of Malmö and Copenhagen on the Chinese market and these efforts have now been rewarded when BYD, the world-leading supplier of electric buses and taxis, delivers its electricity-powered buses to the port in Malmö.

 "Receiving the first electric buses from China today is a significant and strategically important happening for us. It is especially pleasing that we are collaborating with a partner that focuses on sustainability and advanced green technology, something that is exactly in line with CMP's own efforts," says Johan Röstin, CEO of Copenhagen Malmö Port AB.

Malmö is already Scandinavia's largest car port and with BYD's electric vehicles, CMP will increase its operations further.

"We have long experience of handling and receiving heavy vehicles like buses and lorries, what we call "rolling goods". This experience and the port's strategic location make us an attractive partner and player for further transport within Scandinavia and out to Europe," says Johan Röstin.

The buses will be used for local bus services in Ängelholm and Eskilstuna.
