Break bulk

Break bulk volumes increased in 2011, with a marked pick-up in growth towards year-end. The activities are concentrated to Malmö and comprise unloading of ships, warehousing and logistics services.

Break bulk is dominated by three large customers, and CMP serves as a logistics hub for these businesses. In 2012 CMP is planning to broaden its break bulk activities in Copenhagen. Several major infrastructure projects are currently underway in the Danish capital, including the building of a new metro line.

The various construction projects are increasing demand for warehousing and logistics services as well as for expertise and professional handling of break bulk cargo. In this business area there are special risks which arise in connection with the handling of heavy and bulky goods. Health and safety issues are therefore assigned a particularly high priority.
