Polish seaports last year handled a total of 62.6 million metric tons of cargo, including 1.37 million TEU containers. The port of Gdynia handled 15.9 million metric tons of cargo, the port of Gdańsk over 25.3 million tons, and the ports of Szczecin and Świnoujście a combined 21.4 million tons.

Container handling revived after several years of recession. Cranes at Polish container terminals moved 1,369,094 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEU) last year, 28.2 percent more than in 2010.

Business at Baltic seaports may get a boost from a new shipping alliance announced by six shipowners transporting containers from the Far East to the Baltic Sea. The shipowners—APL, Hyundai Merchant Marine, Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Hapag-Lloyd AG, Nippon Yusen Kaisha, and Orient Overseas Container Line (OOCL)—announced the team-up at the end of December, with plans to operate on routes from Asia to Northern Europe and from Asia to the Mediterranean Sea. The alliance will manage a fleet of 90 container ships and operate nine routes linking 40 seaports, including a weekly service to Gdańsk. The route to Gdańsk is expected to open in April.
