Slovakia is landlocked so ocean containers will be able to deliver goods through transportation from the ports to land. Ports available in Slovakia include port of Gdynia in Poland or port of Constanta in Romania. If your goods are arriving in full containers or a cargo that is de-consolidated, then delivery by a truck at either port is necessary.
