Tadeusz Palmowski , Maciej Tarkowski
AbstractTo keep and enhance a competitive edge a port needs to regularly investin the infrastructure and superstructure. Such steps improve cargo-handling effectivenessand offer shipowners competitive connections with a relatively short stopovertime, low costs and efficient ship handling. In the period of economic transition,the basic barrier for investments was capital shortage of port authorities and terminaloperators, and lack of interest of global investors in peripheral ports with low qualitytransport links with the hinterland. The European integration process coinciding withthe global economic boom contributed to overcoming these unfavourable conditions.The considerable economic growth, upgrading and development of the port infrastructureand suprastructure, as well as transport infrastructure of the hinterland,raised the attractiveness of Polish ports for shipowners and investors. Port Gdyniaalso drew benefits from this change. The article aims at describing the impact of portinvestments and investments in its direct neighbourhood on the port’s competitiveposition. The article focuses on: (1) port organisational structure; (2) modernisation ofthe port and port access infrastructure; (3) development perspectives.
