Bulk cargo

The Ports of Szczecin and Swinoujscie together constitute the largest center for servicing dry bulk cargo on the Polish coast. Major cargo types transshipped and stored include coal, iron ore, as well as salt, coke, concentrates, fertilizers, scrap metal, raw materials for the construction industry, liquid pitch and tar. Cargo handling provided by a highly specialized terminal accounts for nearly 50% Polish coal export and 100% import of iron ore.

In the port of Swinoujscie these commodities are handled at fully mechanized storage yards of 120,000 m2 next to quays equipped with cranes. 

Coal is the main cargo served in the port of Szczecin.  The coal terminal in Szczecin has a coal tip with loading capacity of 1000 t/h, cranes with lifting capacity up to 16 t and receiving area capable of storing 200,000 tons. The coal terminal in Swinoujscie is equipped with two coal tips, coal thawing, receiving area capable of storing 700,000 tons of load and loading system with loading capacity of 2000 tons per hour. Reloading is done by the equipment prepared for the daily handling rate up to 25,000 tons. A strong advantage is also the possibility of servicing iron ore carriers of 13.2 m in draught and 270 m long.

Specialized terminals for transshipment and storage of grain and animal forage are situated in Szczecin. The largest on the Polish coast grain silo EWA of 75,000 m3 guarantees efficient sanitary control as well as transshipment, storage, weighing and drying of grain. Moreover, three other silos are situated in the port of Szczecin. Total capacity of four silos is 70,000 t.

Since 2011, the ports have also two modern grain flat storage warehouses with the capacity of 45 000 tons in Szczecin and 50,000 tons in Swinoujscie.

Both ports have the potential for servicing and storing different types of liquid cargo - oil products, methanol, ethanol, vegetable oils, fertilizers, tar and pitch. The combination of these terminals with rail, road infrastructure and inland waterways makes an excellent point for handling liquid products in relation: ships - tanks - rail tank cars, road tankers or barges.

Transshipping storage with reference to bulk goods also offers the possibility of developing port based industry.
