As much as 2.9 percent more transshipments in 2020 compared to 2019, second place in the list of growth dynamics among the 10 largest Baltic ports and long-term development plans – despite the pandemic, the Sea Port of Gdynia is breaking new records and does not slow down the investment pace.

"We closed 2020 with an even better result than 2019, which was also a record year and a year of undisturbed work," Adam Meller, President of the Port of Gdynia said.

The first two months of 2021 also brought the Port of Gdynia a record increase of 9.9 percent of the amount of container reloading compared to January and February 2020, which gave it the second position among the Baltic giants – after Aarhus and before Gothenburg. In 2020, the "jubilee" 4-millionth container was handled at the Gdynia Container Terminal (GCT).

The increase in total transshipments in 2020 compared to 2019 gave the Port of Gdynia, as the only one in Poland, also the second position among the 10 largest ports in the Baltic Sea  – after Klaipeda, and before St. Petersburg.

“2020 has turned out to be a very good year for us. We defended the result of transhipments. Most of the ports in the world did not manage to do this," Maciej Bąk, vice-president for finance at the Port of Gdynia, emphasized.

Port Gdynia is also not slowing down the pace of investments in infrastructure. In 2020, expenditure on investments that prepare the port for new cargo groups and the largest ships amounted to PLN 214 million. The next three years will bring expenses of around PLN 1 billion.

"The costs of deepening the fairway and construction of quays alone are PLN 856 million, but this is a project that will increase the volumes of transshipments," Jacek Sadaj, vice president for infrastructure and property management, explained.
