Anniversaries: 65 years of Polsteam

In 1951, the merger between Żegluga Polska and Gdynia America Line gave birth to Polsteam.

The company was entrusted with the task of securing Poland's postwar international trade, in the fist years mostly coal in exports, and iron ore in imports.

In subsequent years, Polsteam diversified its offer, transporting e.g. cement to Africa.

As such, the company's flet grew in numbers, and altogether 335 ships came and went over the years (Sołdek being the fist).

Nowadays, the company runs 55 vessels, mostly handy-size bulkers; however, Polsteam has also one specialized vessel for sulphur carriages, as well as owns the ferry operator Unity Line.
