The objective of the meeting with the participation of invited companies - both present and potential port clients - was to present the Port of Gdynia and its present offer.
General information about the port and investment plans were presented by Maciej Krzesiński, Marketing and International Cooperation Director at PoGA S.A. Rafał Kwapisz, Managing Director at Finnlines Polska, included in his presentation the idea “You will reach main ports on the Baltic Sea, North Sea, and further”, underlined the ship-owner’s operations for environmental protection and showed the fleet development directions. In the following presentation, Director Jan Darski (Transfennica Polska) presented the extensive offer of the Spliethoff Group, including conventional connections with North and Latin America, ro-ro Transfennica connections that enable cargo transport to ocean ports apart from Baltic and North Sea ports, and project cargo transport options on BigLift ships. In the second part of the meeting terminals were presented. Michał Kużajczyk, Commercial Director of the Baltic Container Terminal, underlined cargo handling capacities and record container turnover at the terminal this year. He also spoke about full BCT potential in terms of handling non-containerised general cargo, including heavy and oversize units. It has been 40 years this year since the first container ship called at the Port of Gdynia. OT Port Gdynia was presented to the participants by Łukasz Waluszko, Commercial Director. In his speech he underlined that the terminal’s greatest asset is its versatility, i.e. the ability to handle and store both general cargo, containers and dry bulk cargo. OT Port Gdynia has a dedicated ro-ro cargo handling terminal, offering professional service in ro-ro technology to semitrailers, RT and cassettes. Thanks to adding new cargo handling equipment to the terminal and to investment projects of PoGA S.A., OT Port Gdynia meets its clients’ needs continuously improving its services and providing the possibility to handle various types of cargo.
After the official part the meeting participants continued their talks touching such subjects as port issues, foreign trade and transport.
