The Port of Gdynia maintained an increase in transhipments in the first 4 months of the year. The port continues investments

The Port of Gdynia maintained an increase in transhipments in the first 4 months of this year. Over 8.26 million tons had been transhipped at Gdynia terminals by the end of April. This is a growth dynamic of 102.3% year on year. Other Baltic ports reported drop in cargo and container handling by around 10%. Liquid fuel transhipments were maintained at 98% in Gdynia. Slight decreases are also visible in general cargo (94.7%) and container (91%) transshipment in the first 4 months.


The Port of Gdynia transhipped 24 million tons and almost 900 thousand TEU containers in 2019. Important investment decisions were also made in 2019. New infrastructure investments will facilitate access to the sea terminals from the sea and rail and road routes. “We started and ended the year with records. “Charlotte Maersk” was the longest container ship that ever called at the port of Gdynia (347 m). We also managed to beat the transshipment result from 2018 by almost half a million tons,” said Adam Meller, President of the Board of the Port of Gdynia Authority S.A. at a press conference.

Ferry Terminal. In 2019, construction of a public ferry terminal had begun as well as preparations for the construction of the Outer Port at the Port of Gdynia. The new terminal will improve the quality of service for the passengers and the transport companies on the Gdynia (Poland)–Karlskrona (Sweden) route. The project “Construction of a Public Ferry Terminal at the Port of Gdynia” includes various investments like building the ferry terminal of a cubic capacity of 30 thousand m and warehouse of 7 thousand m cubic capacity, redevelopment of 600 meters of quays, as well as construction of yards and parking lots of a total area of 65 thousand square m

The Outer Port. The Port of Gdynia Authority also decided to build the Outer Port.  It will be a large container terminal with an area of about 180 ha. 400 m long vessels with a draft of 16 m will be able to moor here. The largest container ships entering the Baltic Sea (Baltimax size container ships—currently 400 m with a capacity of over 21 thousand TEU) will be able to moor at 4 places at the Outer Port. An LNG terminal is also in planning. It is one of the largest PPP projects that is going to be implemented in the near future in Poland. The project involves the construction of a new deep-sea port terminal together with a container terminal with an annual transshipment capacity of 2.5 million TEU. The estimated capital expenditures for the Outer Port is EUR 787 million. With good winds, the investment should be completed by 2028
