CMA CGM includes DCT Gdansk

Thursday, June 07, 2007
With the arrival of its 1400 TEU feeder vessel Cape Fulmar at the DCT Gdansk terminal on 6 June, CMA CGM became the first of the top ten global container shipping lines to incorporate this brand-new Polish facility into its worldwide network. Cape Fulmar is now expected to make regular calls at DCT Gdansk on her weekly schedule that links four container terminals in Hamburg with Gdynia, Klaipeda and now DCT Gdansk. According to DCT Gdansk’s General Manager, Fred Kamperman, Cape Fulmar discharged 27 20-ft. and six 40-ft. containers and loaded two 40-ft. units: “For a first call, we were really delighted to see so much cargo. When the shippers were loading these containers in Asia, for example, we were still rushing to finish the terminal in time for 1 June, the start date we had set ourselves 24 months ago. We are confident that we can attract much more cargo and more carriers now that we have been able to demonstrate our ability to perform.
