The Top 3 Container Terminals in Poland

3 najważniejsze terminale kontenerowe w Polsce

Poland plays a significant role in international maritime container transport, especially in the Baltic Sea region. Every day, containers arrive at Poland’s most important ports from neighboring countries and distant corners of the world. It’s time to get to know the top three container terminals in Poland better!

Baltic Hub Container Terminal in Gdańsk

Baltic Hub is the largest container terminal in Poland and the largest single terminal in the Baltic Sea. It is the only terminal in the Baltic Sea region capable of handling transoceanic container ships from China. Established in 2007, the Baltic Hub container terminal has significantly expanded over the years, becoming one of the most important maritime transport hubs in Europe.

Its annual handling capacity is 3,250,000 TEUs. In 2023, the Port of Gdańsk handled a total of 81 million tons of cargo, ranking it 9th in Europe. Maritime transport to Poland includes container deliveries to Gdańsk from China, among other places, allowing for further intensive development of this location.

Baltic Container Terminal in Gdynia

The Baltic Container Terminal (BCT) in Gdynia is another key player in the Polish maritime container transport market. Located in one of Poland’s largest seaports, the terminal has been offering comprehensive container delivery services to Gdynia since 1979. Various types of cargo in 40 HC and 20 DC containers regularly arrive at the port from different parts of the world. In addition, the terminal handles imports and exports of refrigerated containers to Poland. The overall handling capacity of BCT is currently 1 million TEUs.

Container Terminals in the Port of Szczecin-Świnoujście

The Port of Szczecin-Świnoujście plays a significant role in maritime container transport to Poland. In 2023, the terminals handled over 35 million tons of cargo. While this may not be as much as Gdańsk, there are indications that the Świnoujście terminal will soon play a more important role in Polish maritime container transport. This is related to the plan to build the Deepwater Container Terminal, which will be able to handle the largest container ships sailing in the Baltic Sea. The investment is expected to be completed by 2028, with work on obtaining necessary permits starting later this year.
