    Strategic Polish seaports receive “The One Who Changes the Polish Industry” award

    Strategic Polish seaports have received an award of “The One Who Changes the Polish Industry”, says press center of Port Szczecin-Świnoujście. The award was presented on 27th February this year in Warsaw during an official gala that concluded the 21st Changing Polish Industry Forum. The award was handed over to the Minister Marek Gróbarczyk and presidents of seaports, including Dariusz Słaboszewski, the President of Szczecin and Świnoujście Seaports Authority.

    The award “is the recognition of our effort to strengthen the position of Polish ports on the European advanced logistics and sea transport markets”. Additionally, the justification of the award for the Szczecin-Świnoujście seaports read “the ports of Szczecin and Świnoujście had record high cargo handling, which endorsed their strategy to focus on diversity, a strategy which also supports the development of the Polish economy and export. The growing potential in the western part of the coast is matched with development of logistic and transport infrastructure”. 

    Award decisions were made by the editorial college of Magazyn Gospodarczy Nowy Przemysł (New Industry Business Magazine) and wnp.pl portal, and the publisher for the two is Polskie Towarzystwo Wspierania Przedsiębiorczości (Polish Enterprise Support Society).
    The award is the evidence that the ports of Szczecin and Świnoujście are appreciated as a brand. Their development and high quality of services provided have been recognised in Poland and abroad.  According to the 2018 BIMCO Report, ship owners recognise our two ports as the best in handling dry bulk. The year 2018 ended with a record high result of 29 m tons of cargo handled, which translates into an increase by 12.5 percent comparing with 2017. 

    Both ports comprise a universal port complex capable of servicing virtually any type of cargo. They are the only ports in the country with the access to inland waterway, sea, rail and road transport. In the nearest future, The Ports Authority will spend nearly PLN 1.5 bn on modernization and extension of their port infrastructure.
