Copenhagen Malmö Port dropping its focus on barge services between Malmö and Copenhagen
Copenhagen Malmö Port, CMP, is discontinuing its efforts to establish barge services as an alternative transport route between Malmö and Copenhagen. This decision is a consequence of the fact that demand has proven to be weak.
The objective was to create a cost-effective transport route by water across the Öresund Strait, resulting in part in environmental gains.
- "We firmly believe in this idea, but have to state that CMP has not achieved the volumes we need in order for the investment in barge services to be financially viable," says Johan Röstin, CEO of Copenhagen Malmö Port.
CMP considers it perfectly feasible that the project may be resumed if demand for barge services across the Öresund Strait increases above its current level.
