A new regular container line appeared at the Szczecinskie Quay at the Port of Gdansk. The Samskip shipping company is introducing a weekly connection between Gdansk and the ports of Denmark and Norway. The Port Gdanski Eksploatacja company will take care of handling the cargo. Thanks to the cooperation of Port Gdanski Eksploatacja and the Samskip company, the Szczecinskie Quay at the Port of Gdansk will handle the container connection between Scandinavia and Poland. Samskip's containers will transport frozen fish to Gdansk and export construction materials and consumer goods from Poland. The service is also adapted to handle oversize cargo in specialised containers.

Mr Marcin Osowski, Vice-President of the Board and Director of Infrastructure at the Port of Gdansk Authority, said that "A revival of the inner part of the Port of Gdansk is one of our priorities. This is why we are redeveloping the quays along the Martwa Wisla River and dredging the port fairway. It is a particularly sensitive place at the Port with a limited capability on account of its depth and width. We are happy that the cooperation between PGE and Samskip will significantly contribute to the revival. It shows that the transshipment of containers does not need to be limited only to the deepwater part of the Port."

Two vessels owned by Samskip will call at the Szczecinskie Quay in turns - one will arrive at the Port of Gdansk every Friday.

Mr Radoslaw Stojek, President of PGE, said that "The choice of the place where the container ship will call is not accidental. The transport service offered by Samskip will compete with motor vehicles. As the main transshipment operator within the area of the Port of Gdansk, we can shape logistics processes at the Inner Port. We believe that this will be a beginning of a fruitful, long-term cooperation for both the Port of Gdansk and the Samskip and PGE companies."
