DCT Gdansk is now officially a member of a club of container terminals handling 1 million TEU annually and more. After only 6 years of operating, DCT Gdansk became a hub port for Central - Eastern Europe and Russia, serving as a true gateway leading to Poland and other Baltic states. DCT handled millionth TEU of the year on November 15, 2013 while operating Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller.

This is a great milestone not only for the terminal, but for the entire Polish container business in particular. For many decades Polish market was serviced by foreign ports. Together with creating DCT Gdansk, Polish importers and exporters gained reliable and efficient facility providing the highest international standards.

“Polish container industry is young and still searching for its identity on the international market. For a long time Poland was perceived as a marginal player and both clients and terminal operators doubted that this position may ever be changed. DCT Gdansk filled the gap and responded to the market demand by attracting direct deep sea calls to the Baltic Sea and taking on the role of the leader in changing region’s trade patterns. Gdansk became an important link connecting CEE and Russian markets with the Far East. It is crucial for the whole Baltic industry to acquire coherent pattern of container transport, with leading container hub port in Gdansk, and sufficient and modern feeder terminals in other main Baltic ports” says Maciek Kwiatkowski, President of the Board, DCT Gdansk.
