Gdynia is a multipurpose port specialising in handling general cargo, especially unitised cargo transported in containers and in the ro-ro system.
Container handling is carried out by the two container terminals located in the western part of the port: the Baltic Container Terminal owned by International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI) and the Gdynia Container Terminal owned by Hutchison Port Holdings. Additionally, the western part is also dedicated to the development of intermodal and logistics operations. The key assumption in the port’s development strategy is the transformation from a feeder port to a container hub and ocean port.
Another important segment of the port’s operation is bulk cargo handling through specialised terminals. As one of the key container ports on the Baltic Sea, the Port of Gdynia has become the leader in grain and fooder handling in Poland.

The Gdynia-Karlskrona’Motorway of the Sea’is a naturalextension of this corridor to Scandinavia. The connection is operated by Stena Line, one of the largest ferry operators in Europe.
The Port of Gdynia also has a modern ro-ro terminal with a two-level ramp for handling the largest ro-pax vessels.

The port is managed by the Port of Gdynia Authority, a joint-stock company set up in 2000 to align the port’s infrastructure with the ever increasing market expectations.
