Second Birthday of DCT Gdansk Terminal

Wednesday, October 07, 2009

On October 1, 2007 the construction of Deepwater Container Terminal Gdansk was completed and the terminal officially opened.  DCT Gdansk is the newest and most modern container terminal in the Baltic region.

After two years of operational activity, the terminal developed cooperation with many customers among freight forwarders, shipping lines, rail operators and transport companies. The terminal’s turnover is continues to increase and DCT Gdansk handled over 100 thousand TEU-s in the first operational year. Despite the economic crisis, within the first half of 2009, DCT had handled more than in the whole of 2008. The trust and cooperation DCT enjoys from various customers is a confirmation of the unique potential of DCT Gdansk terminal.

Currently the terminal is regularly handling the vessels of Containerships as well as the following feeder lines: Team Lines, IMCL / BCL and Unifeeder and the largest container operator in the world Maersk Line.
 
Other global container operators such as Hapag-Lloyd, NYK, Cosco, China Shipping, ZIM, Hyundai, MOL, K-Line, UASC and Evergreen accept DCT Gdansk as a handling terminal for their containers, using the services of the above mentioned feeder lines.

Presently all Polish terminals are supported only by feeder lines via German and Benelux ports where containers are transshipped from ocean-going vessels to smaller feeder vessels which then shuttle to the Baltic Sea region. Thanks to its infrastructure DCT Gdansk is the first terminal in Poland, which can accommodate and handle vessels of 8,000 or more TEUs capacity.

Terminal has a quay length of 650 meters and a depth of 16.5 meters. Its modern equipment provides a high productivity in containers handling. As a result of its direct open-sea access DCT offers the best potential to handle ocean-going vessels scheduled directly to the Baltic Sea.
