CMP receives Chinese electric buses in Malmö
BYD recently delivered two electric buses to Malmö, Sweden where they will be used for local bus services in Ängelholm and Eskilstun.
These are the first Chinese EV buses unloaded at CMP's vehicle terminal in Malmö, Scandinavia's largest car port.
"CMP has been working for a long time to position the ports of Malmö and Copenhagen on the Chinese market and these efforts have now been rewarded when BYD, the world-leading supplier of electric buses and taxis, delivers its electricity-powered buses to the port in Malmö. "
Johan Röstin, CEO of Copenhagen Malmö Port AB said:
"Receiving the first electric buses from China today is a significant and strategically important happening for us. It is especially pleasing that we are collaborating with a partner that focuses on sustainability and advanced green technology, something that is exactly in line with CMP's own efforts."
"We have long experience of handling and receiving heavy vehicles like buses and lorries, what we call "rolling goods". This experience and the port's strategic location make us an attractive partner and player for further transport within Scandinavia and out to Europe."
