In December 2023 last year Eurostat published data for the 1st quarter with 51% increase in reloading volume of Port Gdańsk, which was the EU record that resulted in Gdańsk’s 5th position in the European Union. The biggest ports Rotterdam, Antwerpen, Bruges and Hamburg reported declines in the 1st quarter 2023. Gdańsk has been the European fastest growing port of this decade but its leap in the last two years is astonishing mainly due to geopolitical developments. In 2022 its reloading volume exceeded 2021 by 40% and scored 10th position in the EU mainly thanks to energy-related cargo. Recent infrastructure investments in Port Gdańsk are also revolutionary at $ 1.5 billion. In January $ 7 million will be invested in deepening of one wharf by 10 m to increase its reloading capacity and improvement of 4 other wharfs will start soon. Gdańsk is now developing 30-year strategy.
