In 1966, state-owned PKS was divided into a couple of smaller companies. Among them was PKS Gdańsk-Oliwa, a transportation company responsible for domestic full truckload transport for the biggest, at the time, manufacturers in North Poland, including Bałtyk, Centrostal, Port of Gdansk, Gdańsk Brewery, and others.
Our holiday resort center was built 50 years ago with the participation of the employees, who, back then and nowadays, like to spend their holidays there. Today Zawiaty is a very popular resort in Kashubian region with many offers to suit any needs. Find out more at http://www.zawiaty.com.
The nineties were a time of great change in Poland and also in our company. In 1993, PKS Gdansk-Oliwa was under the control of government-appointed administrators and the decision was made to extend operations to international markets with focus on eastern countries.
After restructuring and reorganizing, the company was privatized and transformed into a joint-stock company with 94 employees as shareholders.
As a result of the company’s strategy, extending operations to new markets and investing in a new fleet was necessary. In January 1996, a new, modern VOLVO truck was acquired and a new transport base was established.
After the financial crisis in Russia, the board decided to acquire a dozen DAF trucks and extend operations to western markets, which soon after become our core business directions.
Based on hands-on experience in transport to and from UK and Scandinava, where ferry bookings were part of the everyday routine, a website for ferry crossings was founded - PROMY24.COM.
Our first branch opened in Kwidzyn. As a result, we were able to provide even better services to the customers in the region.
Up-to-date Gdynia branch is responsible for intermodal container forwarding.
Our vehicles are equipped with telemetry systems providing real-time data, including current location, fuel consumption, direct contact with drivers, etc.
PKS Gdansk-Oliwa went through the re-branding process; the logo was redesigned and corporate colors have been changed.
In 2012 a decision was made to develop a network of offices across the country. Sixteen branches have been established including Wrocław, Świecie, Szczecin, Łodz, Warsaw, Poznan, Olsztyn, Chorzow, Białystok, Tarnow, Cracow, Katowice, Lublin and Budapest (Hungary).
In 2013 domestic and international groupage services were introduced.
PKS Gdansk-Oliwa was concerned with its impact on ecology, for this reason our fleet was among the first in the country that met the EURO 6 standard.
Fifty years later, PKS Gdansk-Oliwa remains committed to providing top-noch services to our customers, without whom our success would not be possible.
In July 2017 PKS Gdańsk-Oliwa S.A. officially started a process of changes in the company structure, i.e., its transformation into a turquoise/tilt organisation which means a completely new standard of TSL company management.
