Poland’s Baltic Sea ports of Gdańsk, Gdynia and Szczecin-Świnoujście handled a combined 61.7 million metric tons of cargo last year, 30 percent more than in 2009. The ports also broke new records in terms of financial performance. For example, the Port of Gdańsk posted a profit of zl.17.8 million. All the ports keep investing and this year total investment is expected to be worth around zl.200 million. In Szczecin, work is scheduled to build a terminal to handle sulfuric acid and in Gdynia projects are planned to expand the existing terminal and design a new warehouse. Seaports in other countries in Europe also increased their cargo handling. For example, the port in Duisburg, Germany, handled 2.25 million containers, 25 percent more than in 2009 and cargo handling in Antwerp, Belgium, reached 430 million metric tons, an increase of 11 percent over 2009.
