Since 1977, when Torben Christensen started the brokerage company Copenhagen Merchants in the basement of his private house, the CM business and its activities have grown quite a lot.

Today, with close to 300 employees in the CM Group, the company is not only one of the largest grain brokering companies in Europe – we also now have the ability to provide efficient turnkey solutions for our clients and thereby minimize the risk for both buyers and sellers.

Based on individual client needs, we can support with vessel chartering, railway logistics, superintendence, quality analysis, terminal handling, ship agency and/or custom clearance, etc.


As a group, we wish to continue our track record of long-lasting, mutually beneficial relationships with clients and service providers with the objective to be the preferred business partner for agricultural and biomass commodity trading in our region.

Copenhagen Merchants is a leading commodity broker and service provider for the agricultural trading industry. We primarily focus on international brokerage of grains.

Via our other sister company, CM Biomass, we are also heavily involved with the global trade and distribution of wood pellets and other biomass commodities.

Since the very beginning, Copenhagen Merchants was interested in vessel chartering in order to understand the dynamic market opportunities. Hence, we have developed a significant competitive chartering desk, ship management and ship agency services.

Furthermore, CM Group is a manager and owner/co-owner of 11 multi-bulk export and import terminal terminals with a combined storage capacity of more than 600,000 MT. Many of the terminals offer bagging, quality analysis and/or other related services.
