Services for German Companies in the Polish Market
Due to its strategic location at the intersection of major transport routes both north-south and east-west, Poland places great emphasis on maintaining a strong position on the logistics map of Europe.

Major projects such as the Solidarity Transport Hub, Poland’s involvement in the Belt and Road initiative or the north-south route „via Carpatia” attest to Poland’s position as a regional leader.

Poland offers a diverse range of businesses in the manufacturing, service and agricultural sectors. Finding a partner in sectors such as automotive, aviation, IT, food processing, electronics or finance, for example, is no challenge. In addition, the flexibility of Polish entrepreneurs and their readiness to meet even the most stringent quality and industry standards proves to be another major advantage.

German companies investing in Poland in 2022 have significantly increased their interest compared to the previous year. International investments are focused on the business services, automotive and energy/air-conditioning technology sectors.  In recent months, German companies have announced or launched high-tech investments.

The current geopolitical situation has led to increased potential for optimising production costs through stable investments by German companies in Poland. 

Imports to Germany grew more strongly than exports in 2022, primarily due to high energy prices. The value of imports amounted to EUR 1,488.1 billion, 24.3% higher than in the previous year. The result is a declining German export surplus for the fifth year in a row. This time it amounted to EUR 76 billion. A year earlier, it was still some €100 billion higher.

Nearshoring

It allows for the diversification of business risks, streamlining the supply chain and enables the strengthening of business relationships, which should be based on solid values.

Nearshoring also makes it possible to streamline paperwork issues in cooperation. We can count on the fact that the legal systems of the European Union countries are similar, and it is easier to find an accountancy office specialising in the tax regulations of neighbouring countries.

The question of holidays and days off is also similar, which is of considerable importance when it comes to the pragmatic organisation of work. Finally, we are left with the important added value of the aforementioned accelerated delivery times and the key issue of communication, with the possibility of meeting more often face to face to form meaningful H2H relationships.
