Abstract The aim of this paper is to assess the utilization of selected transportation modes in services facilitating Polish foreign trade between 2010 and 2017. Poland’s foreign trade in commodities is characterized generally herein. The contribution of individual transport modes (i.e. road, rail, inland waterways, sea, or air) to facilitating Polish exports and imports is analyzed in terms of quantity and value. As research material, data from the Customs Administration Analytical Centre are used. Simple statistical and graphic methods (e.g., structural and dynamics indicators) are applied. Polish foreign trade in commodities grew between 2010 and 2017. At the same time, the shares of individual transport modes in facilitating exports and imports shifted, with transport by road remaining the largest contributor. Quantitatively, the share of road transport increased, in both exports and imports; however, a reverse trend was observed for its value.
