History

The wide range of our activity is an effect of over 65-year development of the company which was established in the mid-20th century – a State-owned enterprise called Morska Agencja in Gdynia was founded in 1951. At that time, MAG represented foreign shipping lines, shipowners and insurance clubs (P&I) in Poland. In Polish ports the enterprise was providing agency services for Polish vessels and foreign flags. Over time, the company extended its range of activity to include chartering ships, port and container shipments as well as an employment agency for Polish mariners on ships under foreign flags.

With political and economic changes in our country, at the beginning of the 90s, the company turned into an employee-owned company operating under the name: Morska Agencja Gdynia Sp. z o. o. It was the first privatisation in the sector of marine services in Poland. The changes became a stimulus for further development. With our experience of operating in free-market conditions, the company became additionally involved in services including rail and air forwarding, storage, distribution and customs handling.

To strengthen the company’s position in the competitive market, we banked on comprehensive management of cargoes in the international transport. The company has a versatile offer and operates in a number of complementary dimensions. We are often willing to take up new challenges.
