In addition, it can lower the financial impact from the crisis situation and ultimately create additional business.

We provide solutions that can take you all the way to successful Crisis Management:

Identify Gaps

With our Audit methodology we go through your current Crisis Management setup and evaluate this against best practices. Based on the audit review we identify gaps and provide you with a guide for how you can improve.

Make it Happen

We create your Crisis Management Structure with you and help you implement it in your organization. We either take the outset in the gaps identified in our audit or from other activities you have done, or we can provide you with a full-scale Crisis Management implementation program where we are with you all the way.

Make it Stick

The key to successful Crisis Management is to ensure that key staff are well trained and that you have exercised your Crisis Management structure in all details. We provide you with exercise scenarios ranging from simple procedural exercises to full scale cross functional exercises. We help you facilitate the exercises and extract the best practices through a thorough post-exercise evaluation to ensure the continuous learning.

Get Support

We can help you manage specific incidents, or you can use us as sparring partner on crisis management related issues. We also have experience with control centers and can assist you with both implementation and processes for such if you need them for crisis or operational scenarios.

We serve all industries but have our outset in the Maritime industry where we have more than 30 years industry expertise.

CMP - Copenhagen Malmö Port AB

Copenhagen Malmö Port AB (CMP) is centrally located in both Denmark and Sweden serving the import to and export from the region. The Port is located as the natural gateway for the markets in Scandinavia and the Baltic Sea.

A single distribution centre – that's all it takes to reach ten countries in the Baltic Region. CMP enjoys the perfect location. International car manufacturers like Toyota and Honda already make use of the opportunities it provides.

Enjoy lower costs – the Baltic Region can be covered from a single port, meaning you benefit from economies of scale and lower costs. In recent years, CMP has been developing into an important transport hub because our location means we are in exactly the right spot to provide the most effective logistics for the Baltic Sea Region.
Since the opening of the Øresund Bridge in 2000, it has been possible to supply Norway, Sweden and Denmark without trans-shipping freight. All of the countries around the Baltic Sea can now be covered by a simple combination of ships, trains and lorries.

We have the infrastructure – we have everything you need to deliver the goods safely and on time. Container ships, car ships and ro-ro vessels dock at CMP every day. We are located in the north–south transport corridor and also have good east–west links.
CMP’s port facilities in Denmark and Sweden are linked by the Øresund Bridge. CMP is situated close to both Copenhagen Airport and a well-developed network of motorways and railway connections.

A new logistics park – in the next few years CMP will be building a new ferry terminal, a combi-terminal, two new container terminals and a car terminal.

CMP can offer space right beside the new terminals. That provides advantages regardless of whether your ongoing distribution is by ship, lorry or aeroplane.

One big local market – CMP has a market of four million people right on its doorstep, and that means quick and easy contact with large numbers of affluent consumers. The whole Baltic Sea Region is home to some 100 million consumers.

Working together to generate results – we believe in progress and growth through partnership. CMP invests in port infrastructure and facilities along with our customers in line with current strategy and in order to generate new business. CMP puts a great deal of effort into encouraging long-term partnerships with our customers – and that produces results.

Our current customers – major international companies have set up in CMP in recent years. Toyota and Honda have concentrated their automobile distribution to the whole of the Nordic Region and Western Russia at CMP. Sony Nordic and the Spanish steel giant Acerinox are other distribution customers. UNICEF's world storehouse is also located at CMP.
