This article attempts to explore the effects caused by the implementation of facilities for maritime entrepreneurs introduced under the act deregulating economic law (hereinafter: "Ports 24h" or port package). Moreover it was analysed whether the procedures implemented by the Customs Service and border units, and in particular the simplified procedure, one stop shop and single window, shortened the time of customs clearance in ports. It was examined whether new solutions affected seaports in Poland and helped to build their competitive advantage over the Baltic Sea. The port of Gdansk was particularly interested due to the annual increase in transhipments. There is a surprising lack of studies on customs conveniences in sea ports. The bulk of academic work focuses on the competitiveness of sea ports as seen through infrastructural investments, with no consideration given to factors such as stable, clear and reliable law which does not impede enterprises in their business.
