Strong year with cruise record for Copenhagen Malmö Port

CMP’s turnover in 2017 amounted to SEK 839 (812) million. Operating income was SEK 78 (43) million and operating margin was 9.3 (5.3) per cent. During the year CMP handled 15.5 (15.7) million tonnes of freight. CMP also received 849,000 cruise passengers which is an increase of almost 16 per cent. The number of cruise arrivals amounted to 325 (311) and comprised a gross tonnage of 24.2 (21.3) million tonnes.

“We are seeing a strong development for the cruise operation. The ships are getting bigger and there are more arrivals. Furthermore, we are handling more of what are called Turn Around calls, where the ships change passengers. This clearly consolidates Copenhagen’s position as the leading cruise destination in Northern Europe and is also confirmed by the fantastic reports we receive from our customers. At the same time, we are also noting increased interest in Malmö since it has become clear CMP can receive larger ships in that port as well,” says Barbara Scheel Agersnap, CEO of Copenhagen Malmö Port.

Container operations have been stable and the dry bulk segment has reported growth with an additional 200,000 tonnes, bringing the total to 3.6 million tonnes in the last year.

“It’s also pleasing that RoRo volumes rose to 295,000 units, and that there was a growth in railway traffic in Malmö,” concludes Barbara Scheel Agersnap.

When the location of Lindbäcks’ new production facility was being chosen, the transport logistics were an important element of the supporting data for the decision. The choice made was Haraholmen in Piteå, with the proximity to Piteå Port and the opportunity for maritime transport operations being major factors. Production has now been up and running for eight months, and this week Lindbäcks shipped its first load by sea. “We loaded and dispatched 85 units down to Lund. Marine transport is an excellent complement to road transport, so we’re now conducting a first test,” says Lars Wallgren, Logistics Manager.
