DCT Gdansk Reaches Milestone: Millionth TEU Handled

Thursday, June 30, 2011

Container terminal DCT Gdansk handled its millionth TEU yesterday. This is an important milestone for DCT Gdansk, one of the most important container terminals in Poland and in the entire Baltic Sea Region.

DCT began its rapid growth at the beginning of 2010 when the Maersk Line AE10 service extended its route to Gdansk. This boosted DCT Gdansk’s development as it became a Baltic Sea hub and was further enhanced when Maersk Line decided to upgrade the AE10 string to the biggest container vessels in the world in May 2011.

“In the Middle Ages, Gdansk was a major port on the Baltic Sea," Boris Wenzel, DCT’s CEO, adds. "Now we are contributing to the next golden age for Poland and its maritime industry. By bringing E-class vessels to DCT in regular weekly calls, we managed to handle almost 733 000 TEUs since 2010, which is 75% of all handled capacity from the beginning of the terminal.  It will not take long till we handle our second million TEUs at DCT.”
