Seaports here are key transportation and trade facilities for almost every country with access to the sea, including Poland. Despite the development of land and air transport, they are still an important part of shipping, as well as a key point in the national economy. Poland has three thriving transshipment ports: Gdynia, Gdansk and Szczecin-Swinoujscie. Check out what you should know about them and what the activities of transshipment ports in Poland are like.

Gdynia transshipment port

For the transshipment port of Gdynia, the container base BCT (Baltic Container Terminal) is crucial. It unloads, loads, transships, forms, unforms and stores containers. BCT also handles (including bonded warehousing) non-containerized general cargo and cars. Also important for trade is GCT (Hutchison Ports Gdynia). Transshipment of general cargo and containers in all relations, including sea, rail, road transport and storage of goods, takes place here. It is also possible here to transship heavy pieces with its own equipment up to 100 tons, or to form, unform and store containers. Both Terminals also have their own rail sidings.

In addition, the Port of Gdynia handles ro-ro and containerized general cargo. A huge plus of the port is Gdynia’s favorable connection to Sweden via the Motorway of the Sea. It is also part of the Trans-European Transport Network TEN-T. The transshipment port in Gdynia also handles bulk cargo.

Gdansk Transshipment Port

The port of Gdansk is one of the largest facilities of its kind in the Baltic Sea region. External fasting includes such piers as coal, fuel, LPG and the Baltic Hub container terminal. A large amount of cargo in Gdansk involves liquid fuels. It is the only Polish port that offers a direct link to China, which is crucial for trade and the economy.

The inner part of the port of Gdansk is a container terminal, ro-ro terminal and ferry and passenger terminal. It also handles passenger cars, fertilizers, sulfur and citrus fruits, among others.

Szczecin-Swinoujscie transshipment port

The third transshipment port in Poland is by far the largest port complex in the region, the port of Szczecin. Both bulk and general cargoes are handled here. Among the most frequently transshipped goods are oversized cargo, metallurgical products, cellulose, paper and granite blocks.

Swinoujscie, on the other hand, is home to Poland’s largest dry bulk terminal. The main source of turnover for this port is coal. In addition, Swinoujscie also has a port terminal that handles car-rail and passenger-car ferries.
