Freight ferries to Poland are dominated by Polferries Freight. This company is one of the few that operate routes between Poland and Scandinavia. They have been in operation for more than 30 years and they are the biggest ferry company in the country. One of their most popular routes is from Nynashamn in Sweden to Gdansk.
There are daily departures to Gdansk in summer but in winter, departures are fewer so check ahead. The ferries on this route are mainly for freight but do accept a limited number of passengers. The port of Gdansk has specialised machinery used for handling freight and is well-organised.
Polferries also operate freight ferries to Poland from Ystad in Sweden, Copenhagen in Denmark and Ronne on the Danish island of Bornholm. These three ferries all arrive in Swinoujscie. Swinoujscie’s ferry terminal is the biggest in the country with modern facilities. It is well-connected to the rest of Poland by road and rail. The E68, which connects Sweden to Greece, provides a vital European road connection.
The other main provider of freight ferries to Poland is Stena Line Freight. They make the 10 hour crossing from Karlskrona, in Sweden, to Gdynia twice a day. Drivers can have a comfortable rest on their journey from Scandinavia to Eastern Europe.
Both Stena Line and Polferries accept direct bookings for freight ferries to Poland. However, many ferry booking agencies can find the most economical fare, on the crossing that is the most convenient for the customer. Many provide online quotations and they are highly recommended.
