Volumes within Cars increased by 12%. This means that CMP handled some 457,000 cars during the year. In Malmö CMP has set up Scandinavia’s largest hub for car handling. These cars are reloaded for further transport to end customers throughout Scandinavia and in Russia. The operation currently comprises 15 different makes of cars. Three of these were added during the year, making an additional contribution to the positive volume trend.
When CMP’s container operation moved to Northern Harbour in 2011 new areas were freed up for the car operation in Malmö. It involves 85,000 square metres, 35,000 of which have been put into order and made operational during 2012. This makes at least an additional 50,000 square metres available to CMP for the continued expansion of car handling activities in Malmö – an expansion aimed at both new and existing customers.
