    DCT Gdansk handles the 9th million container

    The largest container terminal in Poland and the Baltic – DCT Gdansk has marked the handling of 9 million TEU (20-foot equivalent unit) since opening, the company said in its press release. Achieving such a result within ten years of operational activity is a testimony to the continuous, dynamic development of the terminal. On this occasion, the Management Board of DCT Gdansk SA, with the honor of hosting the Minister of Investment and Development, Mr. Jerzy Kwieciński, would like to thank all the clients, partners, contractors and authorities, without whom this success would not be possible.

    The further development of DCT Gdansk container terminal is crucial not only for the region, but also for the entire Polish economy and its entrepreneurs who are more and more visibly increasing the potential for international economic exchange.

    “The DCT terminal that we see today, is the product of constant investment year after year to create a true gateway to the world for Poland. Foreign direct investment such as this requires a stable and clear regulatory framework over the long-term. I would like to thank the employees of DCT Gdansk for their hard work and also our customers for their support in developing DCT into a hub for world trade.”- says Cameron Thorpe, Chief Executive Officer of DCT Gdansk SA.

    “Thanks to the construction of DCT Gdansk terminal ten years ago and continuous investments in its development, Poland can now effectively compete with the largest ports in Europe, to the benefit of state budget. Handling 1,6M TEU in 2017, DCT has established itself as No 16 among top European terminals. Current growth dynamics, which quarter to quarter exceeds 40%, allow us to believe that this position will be at least maintained. It will have a direct influence on the increase in income to Polish budget due to customs, VAT and excise duty. In the first quarter of 2018 it was already 2.1 billion Polish zloty (EUR 470 million)” – adds Adam Żołnowski, Chief Financial Officer of DCT Gdansk.

    Today DCT Gdansk has 1.3km of deep-water quay-line, eleven STS cranes, and handles over 460 vessels per year, including over 100 direct calls from Asia by the largest container vessels in the world.

    Now the terminal is implementing the next investment – T2b project, which includes buying new terminal equipment, extending the yard area, fully optimizing and automating the gate complex for truck drivers and significantly upgrading rail capacity.
