Growing volumes of cargo in the Port of Szczecin and Świnoujście

Preliminary estimates have been confirmed concerning last year’s cargo handling in ports of Szczecin and Świnoujście. Already the first three quarters of last year boded well for cargo handling volumes. Indeed, in 2013, both ports handled 22,750 thousand tonnes of cargo, which accounted for 7% growth compared to 2012. It is the best result that has been recorded in ports of Szczecin and Świnoujście since 1980.

Handling potential of the Świnoujście Ferry Terminal is growing

Already the 10th ferry has started operating between Świnoujście and Sweden. This time the ferry is operated by TT-Line, Germany, an operator which has 6 modern ro-pax vessels and has been providing services between Travemünde and Trelleborg and Rostock and Trelleborg, respectively since 1962 and 1992. The German operator registered the ferry to provide services between Świnoujście and Trelleborg under the Polish flag and manned it with the Polish crew.  On 7th January 2014, m/f Nils Dacke of the same operator called at Świnoujście for the first time. The ferry has a capacity of more than 2200 lanemeter, more than 300 passengers and 162 cabins. The vessel will offer 6 weekly roundtrips.  After registering the ship with the Polish Ship Register (pl. PRS), inspections started in Świnoujście to allow the ferry providing services on the new route. The ferry came to Świnoujście from Travemünde. After the approval procedure was completed, m/f Nils Dacke set out to Trelleborg.  The introduction of the 10th ferry to the schedule of the Świnoujście Terminal, which is an integral part of the transport corridor linking Scandinavia with countries of Southern Europe, will enhance the transport capacity for all our clients and operators.
