2011 in brief

  • Sales increased by 8% per cent to SEK 727 million (675).
  • The operating profit was SEK 106 million (116).
  • Goods loaded and unloaded increased by 1 million tonnes, with scrap metal, cars and break bulk seeing the largest increases.
  • The Northern Harbour in Malmö was inaugurated. The three new cargo terminals will increase CMP’s capacity in Container, RoRo and Combi Traffic fivefold.
  • Project planning and preparatory construction work began on the new cruise ship quay in Copenhagen, which is set open in spring 2013.
  • At the World Travel Awards, a trade event, Copenhagen was named Europe’s Leading Cruise Port.
  • Agreements were concluded with dry bulk customers in the UPS areas at Prøvestenen in Copenhagen.
  • CMP was named Core Port under the EU’s Connecting Europe programme. This will make it easier for CMP to benefit from the €50 billion that is being invested in Europe’s infrastructure.
  • A new fully automated oil boom was installed at the oil port in Malmö. CMP is the first port operator in the world to introduce this new environmental technology. The autonomous surface vessel (ASV), as it is known, quickly seals off the harbour basin, protecting the water and surrounding shoreline in case of a spill.
