AARHUS : Unifeeder has announced the launch of a new service connecting Copenhagen port in Denmark with three major German hub ports, Hamburg twice a week, Bremerhaven and Wilhelmshaven once a week.
“The vast majority – currently close to 90% – of container goods arriving by ship to Zealand is handled by Copenhagen Malmö Port (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,” stated Sune Norup Christensen, CCO at Copenhagen Malmö Port.
Jens Juel Rasmussen, Unifeeder’s Area director Scandinavia, commented, “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,”
