The Logistics Valley is a cooperation platform of municipalities and communes with key public and business entities, institutions as well as scientific and educational centres.
The Logistics Valley is a project aimed at development of a broad area including 8 neighbouring municipalities and communes (City of Gdynia, Commune of Kosakowo, City of Reda, City of Rumia, City of Wejherowo, Commune of Wejherowo, Commune of Liniewo, Commune of Gniewino) as a centre of transport, forwarding and logistics services.
CONDITIONS OF ESTABLISHMENT
Location in the direct surroundings of the Port of Gdynia – one of the three main sea ports in Poland – enables development of logistics, transport, production and accompanying services. The area encompasses lands intended for large surface warehouses, storage yards, parking lots, industrial facilities and buildings for social, service and office backup.
The Logistics Valley – Seaside Economic Zone – is one of the 21 multimodal platforms within the Transport Development Strategy to 2020 which will be created as a part of the EU network of transport corridors (TEN-T).
The strategic documents for the area – strategy and operational programmes of its implementation –were prepared within the “NORDA – Northern Pole of Growth” project. The project allowed also to identify grounds for cooperation and coordination of strategic plans and spatial development plans, including, communication access to the area and internal communication links, activation of lands for new investments and industrial development, economic promotion, close cooperation with main stakeholders of business life as well as research and development centres, educational centres, especially in the scope of adapting education to the employers’ needs.
PREREQUISITES FOR DEVELOPMENT
Location in the axis of the Baltic-Adriatic transport corridor
The Logistics Valley is an area combining sections of the “last mile” of land, sea, road and rail links with the port of Gdynia, Gdansk Lech Walesa Airport and Gdynia-Karlskrona seaside highway.
The Port of Gdynia as a Logistics hub in the core network of the European transport corridors TEN-T
The port is home for many enterprises and innovative maritime industry: the Baltic Port of New Technologies brings together, on the area of 10 ha, innovative shipbuilding companies; other companies from this industry flourish on the area of next 40 ha, including the cradle of shipbuilding industry – “Nauta” Repair Shipyard; and in the direct surroundings 200 companies from the TSL industry are located.
Location of the Port of Gdynia close to the city centre
A limited developmental area of the Port forces companies based in its zone to extend their activity outside its limits. All the communes and municipalities on the territory of the Logistics Valley have developmental areas listed in the planning documents which can be used by Port companies.
Good access to workforce and wide base of students and graduates of higher educational institutions
This advantage is connected with location in the zone of a direct impact of the Metropolitan Area.
Availability of real estate resources on the territory of all local government units with the possibility of development
A data base showing investment lands and facilities in the Logistics Valley is available on the website www.investnorda.pl.
Attractive areas in the neighbourhood, access to cultural goods of the Seaside Service Area NORDA
Attractive recreational and leisure areas in the neighbourhood significantly increase the quality of life.
