Szczecin Industrial Park has very significant role in the Polish industry due to its location. The seaport of Szczecin – Świnoujście is one of the largest in the Baltic Sea region with over 23 mil. tons of cargo yearly turnover . The port is located at the gates of the Baltic Sea making it an obvious destination for international sea freight services. It is furthermore the most important transit seaport for the Czech Republic and Slovakia (source OECD) and competes with Hamburg and Bremen for parts of Germany (e.g. Brandenburg, Berlin). It is the closest city to the Hamburg seaport (4 hours’ drive) that is capable of handling cargo at competitive rates. The port offers access to the European inland waterway system and is on the sea route linking Scandinavia and the Baltic States with the Central and Southern EU.

The first phase of the project with total GLA 53 714 sqm is fully leased, second phase is almost completed and already fully leased – with total GLA 72 918 sqm.
