In 2022, the Port of Gdynia handled approx. 5.6 per cent. compared to 2021, a total of 28.2 million tons of cargo in 2022. In the same period, the number of commercial ship calls at the port increased by over 2%. to 4331.
On January 23, 2023, Deputy Minister of Infrastructure Marek Gróbarczyk, together with the presidents of the Sea Ports Authority, summed up the record-breaking transshipment results of Polish seaports in 2022. The transshipments of the three leading seaports: in Gdańsk, Gdynia and Szczecin-Świnoujście amounted to 133 million tonnes in 2022. This is an increase of approx. 18%. compared to 2021.
– 2022 was another record year for Polish seaports. The transhipment results clearly show how good the condition of Polish ports is. I am convinced that these successes are also influenced by the investments implemented in recent years, which contributed to the development of this sector and increased transshipment capacity. I would like to thank the port authorities and operators and all employees for their hard work. I hope that this year will bring even more positive information for the Polish maritime economy – said Deputy Minister of Infrastructure Marek Gróbarczyk.
Jacek Sadaj, President of the Port of Gdynia told PAP: “The largest investment in the over 100-year history of the Port of Gdynia will be the construction of the external port. This is a very important investment, because we are aware that the Port of Gdynia is today surrounded by the city and we know that the only chance for further development is to build a new external port at sea.
