– OT Port Gdynia will increase its transhipment potential thanks to the purchase of Shiploader, a machine that enables loading ships 50% faster than the currently used technology. Shiploader is a strategic investment of OT Port Gdynia, thanks to which the annual potential of bulk, general cargo and agro transshipments will increase to 4.7 million tonnes – informed Jerzy Majewski, President, OT PORT GDYNIA.
OT Port Gdynia is the most universal port terminal in Poland, offering reloading and storage of general and bulk cargo, providing services to leaders on the international and domestic market. The terminal has a dominant position in the handling of goods in the ro-ro technology and is one of the leaders in the handling and storage of paper and cellulose.
– The total volume of transshipments amounted to 3.7 million tonnes in 2022. This year, we also imported coal. The annual handling capacity of general cargo and bulk cargo (including agro) amounts to a total of approx. 4 million tonnes, and thanks to the investment, the annual handling capacity at OT Port Gdynia will increase to 4.7 million tonnes, emphasizes President Majewski.

The goods are delivered simultaneously through four stands for collection from cars and loading onto the ship. The machine is capable of handling panamax ships (approx. 65,000 tons dwt) – informs Adam Daszczyński – Vice President of OT Port Gdynia responsible for operational matters.
