A modern high bay warehouse is one of the key elements of the Intermodal Logistics Centre in Western Port. The Port of Gdynia Authority, taking into account the constantly growing market requirements, especially in the area of logistics and warehouse facilities, has successfully completed all construction works.
This is the first of four warehouses of this type to be built in the Port of Gdynia, which has already found a tenant at the time of construction.
The opening ceremony was held by: Adam Meller – President of the Port of Gdynia Authority, Minister Michał Woś – Member of the Council of Ministers, Anthony Mukwita – Ambassador of Zambia to Berlin and Justyna Janiec-Palczewska – President of the Redemtoris Missio Humanitarian Aid Foundation.
– Our strategic investment, i.e. the Outdoor Port, requires the creation of an appropriate environment, thanks to which efficient goods handling will be possible. Increased transshipment capacity is an opportunity but also a challenge, which is why it is so important to create favorable conditions for further development – comments Adam Meller, President of ZMPG SA.
– The open warehouse is the first of four of its kind and will be one of the key elements of the Intermodal Logistics Centre. In addition to warehouses, the 30,000 m2 area will also include storage yards and the necessary road and rail infrastructure. Investments in this area of the Port are directly in line with the Strategy of the Port of Gdynia 2027. Our goal is to create favourable conditions for the development of the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) – says Grzegorz Dyrmo, Vice-President of the Management Board of ZMPG SA.
The warehouse, with a usable height of 10.5 m, is designed for storing highly processed general cargo in packaging. Logistic services will be related to warehousing, reception, storage, picking and packing, as well as issuing stocks in the cross-docking system. Divided inside into four storage chambers with an area of 2500 – 4000 sq. m. each chamber will be adapted to the dimensions of pallet frame racks with ensuring the width of the working corridor for transport equipment – lift trucks with extendable masts. The roof structure of the object is adapted to the photovoltaic installation on the whole roof surface.
The ceremonial opening was combined with the transport of humanitarian aid to Zambia, organized by the Chancellery of the Prime Minister, the Material Reserves Agency and the “Redemptoris Missio” Humanitarian Aid Foundation. 22 tons of medical assortment went by sea from the Port of Gdynia to Zambia, intended for 18 medical facilities run by Polish missionaries.
– It is a very important and symbolic day. The completion of the new facility in the port of Gdynia shows that Poland is developing. The first transport serviced in the new warehouse are containers with the largest in the history of the Polish government in terms of in-kind humanitarian aid. 22 tons of medical equipment for 18 medical facilities run by Polish missionaries in Zambia will serve nearly 200,000 people in need. A symbolic day, because the Polish philosophy of aid on the spot, in keeping with our national interest, is possible thanks to such good economic development of our country. By helping on the spot, we are not only fulfilling our duty to support those in need, but also reducing migratory pressure on Europe – says Minister Michał Woś, a member of the Council of Ministers.
The open warehouse is ready to handle further humanitarian aid transports.
