High & Heavy heading eastwards

They are high or heavy and sometimes both! It concerns freight in the High & Heavy segment, which is now increasing at CMP. Dumpers and wheel loaders from Volvo are being exported to Russia.

Since commencing last year, the traffic has expanded, which means that dumpers and wheel loaders are now being exported from Malmö to customers in St Petersburg. As mentioned, the segment is called High & Heavy, and the machines come from Volvo’s plants in Borås and Arvika.

”The flow has accelerated, which means that we are handling between five and ten heavy vehicles a week. We are delighted that UECC decided last year to make us the hub for this handling in Scandinavia,” says Ann-Charlotte Halldén Åkeson, Key Account Manager at CMP.

There are two ships from UECC which operate out of Malmö. They are powered by LNG for cleaner and more environmentally-friendly shipments. The fact that the flow has expanded so much is down to the collaboration between CMP, UECC and the shipping company’s commercial agent STL (Sweden Transport & Logistic) Shipping.

”It is an active collaboration in which we all want to find more and larger volumes. We have a close dialogue with beneficial feedback on how we can improve and customise our offer,” Ann-Charlotte Halldén Åkeson says.

”We are very satisfied with CMP, which manages our bookings of construction machinery and other freight within High & Heavy. As this is a valuable cargo, it is of the utmost importance that it is managed professionally and by expert personnel,” says Johan Johansson, Marketing Director within Sweden Transport & Logistic Shipping AB.
