Unifeeder Group has expanded services connecting Copenhagen with three German hub ports, as well as an extra weekly containership call to the terminals at Copenhagen Malmö Port (CMP).
CMP’s container terminal in Copenhagen is served with one additional container ship call every week.
According to Unifeeder, this new route connects the Danish capital to three important German hub ports: Hamburg twice a week, Bremerhaven once a week, and Wilhelmshaven once a week.
The new route is reportedly doubling the weekly service, enabling local and regional companies to grow their business to and from Zealand, Denmark.
Sune Norup Christensen, CCO at Copenhagen Malmö Port, said: “The vast majority – currently close to 90 per cent – of container goods arriving by ship to Zealand is handled by CMP. The additional weekly Unifeeder call will ensure even better connectivity between Copenhagen and the major Northern European hub ports.
“The capital region and Zealand is a growing market. The city of Copenhagen expects that there will be 100,000 additional Copenhageners before 2050, increasing the need for amongst other things goods shipped by container.”
Jens Juel Rasmussen, Unifeeder’s Area Director Scandinavia, stated: “We are pleased that we can add an extra weekly call to Copenhagen in collaboration with CMP.
“Naturally, we hope that our customers, and especially importers/exporters in Zealand, will benefit from the expanded opportunities for direct connections to all three transit ports in Germany – Hamburg, Bremerhaven, and Wilhelmshaven.”
