Being Polish and having been multiple times to Gdansk I'm pretty surprised such a huge ship can even dock there. Good to know Poland can actually receive goods straight from SE Asia without reloading. On the other hand it doesn't explain how the same electronic equipment (and other luxury goods) is nearly always cheaper in Germany and sometimes even in the UK.

Logistics is only part of the costs. All those electronics are even more expensive in China, where they are often actually made! Taxes, retail overhead, and competition play a much bigger role in the actual price you pay.
