After only six years of operating, the terminal has become a hub port for Central and Eastern Europe as well as Russia, serving as a gateway leading to Poland and other Baltic states.
DCT handled its millionth container of 2013 on 15 November 2013 during a call from the 18,000 teu Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller.
This milestone is good news not only for the terminal, but for the Polish container business as a whole; for many decades the Polish market was serviced by foreign ports.
“The 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 the region’s trade pattern,” said Maciek Kwiatkowski, president of the board, DCT Gdansk.
