The Port of Gdańsk jumped to ninth place among ports in Europe in terms of transshipment. Among the ports in the European Union itself, Gdańsk ranks 7th.

Last year, a record 81 million tons were transhipped at the Port of Gdańsk. Thanks to this, the largest Polish port took 9th place among all ports in Europe. More goods were transhipped in Gdańsk than, among others, in Barcelona, Primorsko, Marseille, Valencia and even Amsterdam.

Only eight ports recorded higher transhipments in 2023 than Gdańsk. These were Haropa (Le Havre, France; 81.3 million tons), Constanta (Romania; 92.5 million tons), Algeciras (Spain; 92.5 million tons), Ust-Luga (Russia; 113.5 million tons), Novorossiysk (Russia; 161.4 million tons), Antwerp-Bruges (Belgium; 269.7 million tons), Rotterdam (Netherlands; 438.8 million tons). Taking into account the European Union ports alone, i.e. after excluding Novorossiysk and Ust-Luga, Gdańsk ranks 7th.

At the same time, the Port of Gdańsk is the second largest port on the Baltic Sea after Ust-Ługa.

Last year, three Polish ports of strategic importance for the country's economy, i.e. Gdańsk, Gdynia and Szczecin-Świnoujście, handled a total of 146.4 million tons of cargo.
