The Management Board of Gdynia Maritime Port has made a significant investment in the port’s development. The port entrance has been reconstructed, the channel has been deepened, and the Romanian Quay has been modernized. These improvements now allow the port to accommodate larger Panamax class vessels, with a draft of up to 14.5 meters and capacity of up to 80,000 tonnes of agricultural products.  The terminal can now handle three to four Panamax vessels per month. This has led to a significant increase in productivity with a daily loading rate of approximately 18,000 tonnes.

This investment is not just an infrastructure improvement, but an investment in the port’s future and its crucial role within the broader logistics network. The development positions Gdynia Port as the leading facility in Poland for accommodating deep draft vessels for handling agricultural cargo.

The increased ship handling capacity improves services for existing customers and opens up new opportunities. With the ability to accommodate larger vessels, the port is better positioned to participate in tenders in countries that source grain from Poland, such as those in Africa or the Persian Gulf region.
