The development of a region depends on a number of factors. One of them is a well-functioning logistics, which in this context can be named as the logistics of the region. Due to the fact that the literature deals with the problem of logistics of regions to a small extent on the one hand, and on the other hand at the same time one of the major investments treated as an essential element of logistic system in Pomeranian Region, i.e. Pomeranian Metropolitan Railway, has been just recently completed, a great opportunity to study an impact of the element on the regional development has appeared. The results of the study show that the Pomeranian Metropolitan Railway has contributed to the liquidation of the unbalance between logistically highly developed Tricity (Gdansk, Sopot, Gdynia) and poorly developed area of Kashubian sub-region resulted mainly in better transportation access for inhabitants, as well as higher logistic service level for the Gdansk Airport.
