Historically, the southern Baltic Sea transportation led to a great Truso. When the semi-legendary city was destroyed, slowly into the arena of history as a great port of Gdańsk and began to enter the arena has never left. The old cog and frigates to replace ships carrying container transport services and any of the districts of the city on Motława transport container is not an extraordinary view.
The great part in the thousand-year history of Gdansk maritime economy was solid, very heavy and well-utilized work of thousands of merchants and entrepreneurs, including family businesses, such as organizing Helena Transport Spedycja services such transport containers or container transport.
A lot has changed since the days when the Slavic boats monoecious or later cog flow into the creek Siedlecki (now almost completely canalized). Then the ships, arrivals from overseas countries moored at castle around the Long Market. Nobody in those days did not know yet the terminology sea freight or customs agency too, but we all act in a systematic way to trade the market sea and land to rationalize and expand for the general good.
As humanity has made giant progress through these one thousand years, how much distance between the times of the Deepwater Container Terminal proudly host the largest container ships in the world.
However, before the name of Gdańsk (initially Gyddanyzc) has established itself as a full-fledged on the economic map of the world there were many incidents in the history of unpredictable and inhibit its development. Already in the eleventh many city burned down leaving him Polish crew will not be able to keep the ruler of Pomerania, which greatly reduced the quality of life.

City again began penurious, deserted barns, on the harbor channel was seen less and less ships. A short period of rest and recovery, which started in the second half of the nineteenth century ruined the Second World War and the town had to start again from the beginning. In others, however, already reality.
Gdańsk returned to the mother. Ruined (up 90%), with a completely new structure of population, still uncertain of his future fate, however, has grown steadily, healing the wounds of war. Few could have foreseen the development of transport, or the success of container-transport services, but it has developed the transshipment of general cargo and bulk (mainly crude oil processed). Poland and Pomerania rebuilt, so the logistical needs were becoming more and more in the price, which - after many years - has resulted in "the icing on the cake" - "the construction of one of the most important investments in the history of Gdańsk Deepwater Container Terminal, which quickly became the largest in Poland approaching the container terminal, and finally breaking the magic barrier of one million TEUs per year.
