As consequence Maersk will leave Copenhagen Malmö Port (CMP) located in the center of Copenhagen as of March 2021.
The agreement between A.P. Moller – Maersk and APM Terminals covers two weekly feeder services with rotation Bremerhaven (DEBRV), Hallstahammer (SEHAL), Helsingborg (SEHEL), Kalundborg (DKKLD), Aarhus (DKAAR), Fredericia (DKFRC) and back to Bremerhaven (DEBRV) totaling approximately 30 pct. of the volumes of the island of Zealand in Denmark. In turn Kalundborg will be added to the global supply lines as volumes for connection to the North Europe/Asia coverage AE5 will be moved via Aarhus.
Kalundborg is a port undergoing rapid development and investments and now also with APM Terminals as an operator, we see a great synergy in moving our business to Kalundborg. Also, Kalundborg is situated well to cater for our growth ambitions in Zealand and to manage our current customer base better and more sustainably.
We are proud that A.P. Moller - Maersk as our first customer subsequently has chosen APM Terminals in Kalundborg to serve as their main point of logistics in the Eastern part of Denmark. With Kalundborg, we see an opportunity to provide customers with a great service and an efficient and competitive product in a strong location which is well connected, accessible and closer to industry and customers of the port.
The agreement will take effect as of 1st March 2021. A.P. Moller - Maersk has called the Port of Copenhagen regularly since 1968.
