Ministry of Infrastructure

LogoMIpion.jpg

The task of the Ministry of Infrastructure is to set directions for action and to create legislative solutions enabling the functioning and development of the branches of government administration: transport, inland navigation, maritime and water management. This structure of the Ministry enables us to have an integral approach to the Polish transport system. In recent years we have placed great emphasis on improving access to our sea ports, repairing and building new quays and dredging waterways. This is very important because Poland's maritime industry has survived the worst of the pandemic in good condition. Sea ports have maintained their transshipments, and shipyards and the entities working for them have maintained their production capacity despite the challenges posed by market turbulence. The special role played by the maritime economy in the government's work is confirmed by the current investment activities underway and planned for implementation: the cross-cutting of the Vistula Spit and construction of the Shipping Channel, the construction of the Central Port in Gdansk, the External Port in Gdynia or the Container Terminal project in Świnoujście. Such investments strengthen the position of the Polish economy.

Police Sea Port Authority Ltd.

The Port of Police is the fourth largest port in Poland in terms of cargo handled. It handles mainly potassium salt, steel structures, phosphate, compound and nitrogenous fertilisers, ilmenite, coal, iron sulphate, hydroxide, liquid ammonia and sulphuric acid.

The port, located at the mouth of the Oder River and managed by the Police Sea Port Authority Sp. z o.o., is situated in the direct vicinity of Grupa Azoty Zakłady Chemiczne "Police" S.A., one of the largest manufacturers of multi-component mineral fertilisers, titanium white and chemicals. A transshipment and storage terminal with tanks of 40,000 m 3 each, which is currently under construction at the port, will cost nearly one billion zlotys.
The terminal, also commonly referred to as a gas port, is a component of the Polimery Police complex. This largest investment of the Polish chemical industry, with a value in excess of PLN 7 billion, has already achieved over 90 per cent material progress.

The fact that the Port of Police Authority Ltd. has at its disposal vacant
land properties is of strategic importance from the point of view of future development and already initiated investment projects that will radically expand the current capabilities of the port and fully integrate it into the modern road and rail transport system.

Of key importance here is the recently completed process of deepening the Swinoujscie-Szczecin waterway to 12.5m and the start of the design and construction process for the Western Bypass of Szczecin as part of the S6 expressway with a tunnel in Police.

Port of Gdansk Authority S.A.

The Port of Gdansk is the only Baltic port that operates direct container connections with China. For Asia, we are the maritime gateway to the markets of Central and Eastern Europe, the most dynamically developing region of the
European Union.

Many international transport corridors begin and end at the Port of Gdansk. The port area is divided into two areas. The first is the inner port, located along the Dead Vistula and the port channel. The second is the outer port
, located directly on the waters of the Bay of Gdansk.

The inner harbour includes a container terminal, a ferry terminal and RO-RO, quays for the transhipment of cars, citrus fruit, sulphur, fertilisers. The inner port is suitable for handling conventional general cargo and bulk goods (metallurgical products, heavy pieces, oversized items, cereals, fertilisers, ore or coal).

The external port is made up of 4 piers: the fuel, coal, LPG and ore jetties and the DCT (Deepwater Container Terminal), located directly on the waters of the Bay of Gdańsk. It is here that energy raw materials such as liquid fuels, coal and LPG are transhipped. The dynamic development of this part of the port (including the construction of a bulk terminal, the location of the PERN Oil Terminal, the expansion of the DCT terminal) means that we are constantly looking for new directions for the spatial development of the port. The plans for the coming years include the construction of the Central Port. It is a project to flood a body of water with an area of approximately 410 ha.

Chipolbrok Sino-Polskie Towarzystwo Okrętowe S.A.

CP-logo.png

The China-Poland Ship Society was established on 15 June 1951 on the basis of an agreement between the Governments of the Republic of Poland and the People's Republic of China. The Society was established mainly to establish a sea link between Chinese and Polish ports. The activity of the Society's fleet allowed for regular supplies of goods for the reconstruction and development of the PRC's economy, burdened at that time by the embargo.

According to the Statutes, the Society's headquarters were established in China - initially in Tianjin and, since 1962, in Shanghai - while the Branch Office was set up in Gdynia, Poland. In addition, the Society now also has its own office in Houston (USA).

The company's activity and financial results allowed for systematic development, expansion and modernisation of the fleet. At the beginning of the 1990s, as a result of changes in the trade structure, the share of cargo traded between China and Eastern European countries in the Company's transport fell from about 90% to nearly 30%.

The newly created conditions forced Chipolbrok to restructure quickly. As a long-established company with the trust of its customers, the Society set itself the objective of adapting its operations to the new criteria. After 1990, the company restructured its commercial and shipping activities, which adapted the company to the new economic conditions in the shipping market and allowed for significant cost reductions.

An important element of the restructuring was the change of the concept of operation, i.e. the inclusion of the Company in the transport service of China's trade with Western European and Mediterranean countries. Chipolbrok, although it is a state-owned company, operates strictly commercially, i.e. it acquires cargoes on the competitive market through its own acquisition and a network of agents and brokers. Such activity is enforced by the countries of Western Europe, the Far East and the United States, with which the company cooperates, as well as by competition with private and state-owned companies.

Currently, the Society's fleet consists of 14 modern, versatile, three-deck multi-purpose vessels suitable for project cargoes and all kinds of oversize cargoes, as well as 5 vessels on long term charter. From 2021, the company's fleet will expand by a further 4 vessels, expanding each with a deadweight of 62,000 DWT.

Currently, the Society is one of the leaders on the shipping market in the field of regular transport of conventional general cargo, heavy and oversized pieces on the routes:

  • Europe - Far East
  • Europe - Middle East - India - Far East
  • Far East - Gulf of Mexico and US East Coast, East direction
  • Far East - Mediterranean Sea - Europe, western direction
  • Gulf of Mexico and East Coast of the USA - Europe, East direction

Port of Gdynia Authority S.A.

Port-Gdynia_logo_level.png

The Port of Gdynia is a dynamically developing Polish port, with a convenient location in the Gdansk Bay area. Called Poland's window on the world, it has been synonymous with modernity since its inception. It was here that the first Polish container terminal was established in the 1970s. Today, Gdynia is a key port of the TEN-T core transport network and an important node of the Baltic-Adriatic corridor. As a strong brand partner, known for the high quality of its services, the Port of Gdynia today faces further challenges due to changing technological and market conditions. The new generation of ocean-going vessels being introduced into shipping determines our actions to adapt the port's infrastructure to their parameters.

The Port of Gdynia is a universal port and one of the leading ports in the southern Baltic Sea. The port specialises in handling general cargo, including mainly unitised cargo carried in containers and in the ro-ro system. Bulk cargo handling based on specialised terminals is also an important business segment. The Port of Gdynia is a recognised brand in transport and logistics systems worldwide. The importance of the Port of Gdynia is largely determined by its geographical location. The Port of Gdynia is a node of the TEN-T base network and an entry point for the Baltic Adriatic Corridor, whose extension is the Gdynia - Karlskrona Motorway of the Sea connecting Gdynia with Sweden. The modern port infrastructure and terminals of the Port of Gdynia are used by the largest global and European shipping operators, including MSC, Hapag-Lloyd, Unifeeder, Containerships, CMA-CGM, X-Press Feeders, Yang Ming, OOCL, Transfennica, Finnlines-Grimaldi, Stena Line, among others. The Port of Gdynia, through its extensive network of regular container, ro-ro and ferry connections, links the sea routes with the national and European rail and road network. Among the regular shipping connections currently served, feeder calls of almost all of the world's major container shipowners dominate. Short sea shipping connections, known as short sea shipping (SSS), are also an important element of the Gdynia port's container connection network. The port's development strategy assumes its further development as a universal port. capable of receiving the largest container, bulk and passenger ships calling at the Baltic Sea. A breakthrough step in opening the Port of Gdynia to ocean-going vessels is the reconstruction of Turntable 2

Maritime Poland

Maritime Poland

Maritime Poland is a multifaceted social media website. We took our first steps in August 2019. Despite the fact that we have only been operating on the media market for two years, we have found ourselves among the industry leaders. We make every effort to maintain the highest standards of our work, quality and business integrity. Therefore, our portal is not only information, but also interesting interviews with experts and authorities in the maritime industry, modern video and audio materials, articles on the history of maritime economy. Our mission is to popularise and pass on knowledge on maritime economy.

The name Polska Morska (Maritime Poland) - derived from the symbolic act of Poland's Wedding to the Sea, which in 1920 in Puck gave birth to the Polish maritime economy and administration - obliges us to reliably inform our readers about the development of maritime economy, key investments, results and progress, thanks to which the maritime economy is gaining strength every day. We create a compendium of knowledge on activities of economic ministries in the field of legislation, education, development strategies of particular areas and all other activities supporting the maritime industry.

We know how important the maritime industry is for the economy and we try to show this to our readers. As much as 10 percent of Poland's income comes from due taxes: VAT, excise duties and customs duties of maritime port boards. In 2018, sea port boards in Poland paid PLN 40.6 billion to the state budget in due taxes. This is nearly 10 per cent of the total revenue from this title in the Polish budget.

Maritime Poland team

   Success is created by people, thanks to our employees we are able to operate on many levels and meet the expectations and requirements of our customers. Our team is made up of highly motivated and committed people who have been involved in the maritime industry for many years. The editorial team includes people with journalistic experience, but also graphic designers, producers, people with knowledge and practice in marketing, trade and advertising (e.g. in organizing international events such as World Maritime Day, the International Maritime Congress).

   In addition, we cooperate with many other entities that carry out photographic and video commissions for us, as well as specialised articles (e.g. we cooperate with universities). We are everywhere where something important for the maritime economy is happening. Thanks to the support of the Ministry in 2020, these opportunities have expanded significantly. We participate in conferences, events and any events of importance to the maritime industry.

Companies cooperating with us

   We are trusted by many entrepreneurs and entities that are of special importance to the maritime economy. We cooperate with Szczecin and Świnoujście Seaports Authority, Maritime Academy in Szczecin, West Pomerania Sea Cluster, Radio Szczecin, Maritime Office in Szczecin, Polish Television in Szczecin, Ferry Terminal Świnoujście, Logistic Centre Gryf, West Pomeranian Voivodeship Office.

   This confirms the creativity of the team, the style and diversity of the services provided. Cooperation with entities of various profiles (companies, universities, media, public authorities) proves that we are able to meet high requirements and our offer has multidirectional perspectives.

Cooperation with the Maritime Cluster of Western Pomerania

   The West Pomerania Maritime Cluster (Klaster Morski Pomorza Zachodni) is created - in cooperation with the scientific and research sector as well as authorities and administration - by thriving, modern companies from the region. It brings together over 70 partners. The consortium includes the biggest entities of the maritime economy and its activities are concentrated on integrating enterprises, organizing events of international scope, promotion and activity within the scope of scientific and research projects.

   Thanks to close cooperation with the cluster, Maritime Poland has access to flexible horizontal cooperation between three groups of entities: entrepreneurs, business environment institutions and educational entities, as well as public authorities. The environment created by the cluster facilitates opportunities for quick interaction and cooperation with entities particularly related to the maritime economy, and this translates into measurable benefits, including one of the most valued in a world overfilled with information - efficient communication and knowledge exchange. Our cooperation also translated into the implementation of corporate social responsibility (CSR) policy, which was particularly important in the era of the pandemic. We joined the "Supporting Hospitals" initiative, the aim of which was to channel funds to current health care needs.

Benefits and summary

   Cooperation with the Polska Morska portal, apart from reaching new groups of customers, offers many possibilities. Not only does it allow you to strengthen the positive image of companies and other entities, but it is also an effective information tool. The offer is especially directed at the maritime industry, logistics, tourism, energy and broadly defined industrial enterprises. We develop and publish materials that promote the activities of the maritime industry, in the form of articles, photo essays, interviews, films and advertisements.

   Our portal is an open forum for discussion on issues important to the Polish and global economies. Experts analyse historical data, talk about economic trends and threats, providing readers with extensive knowledge for their own reflections and conclusions. Our key objective is to reinforce in Poles the sense of seafaring of our homeland and to create the image of maritime Poland around the world using the latest information technologies: we speak with words, sounds and images.
