Brussels, 9 April 2021
DCT Gdansk, the largest container terminal on the Baltic Sea, reached the 15 million TEU milestone, since its opening in 2007.
Thanks to its 17-meter-deep pier and a record number of transshipped containers, DCT Gdansk terminal is the only deep-water terminal in the Baltic Sea that handles the largest container ships in the world.
“Handling 15 million TEUs since the terminal began operations in 2007 is a great achievement and a great success for our employees. If we made a path with 15 million TEUs, we could go around the Earth more than twice. However, it is important to us that each of these 15 million TEUs is a customer who has benefited from our services. This shows the continued support and faith of DCT Gdansk customers; thanks to this we have become a Baltic center”, stated Cameron Thorpe, Managing Director of DCT Gdansk SA.
Despite the pandemic, DCT Gdansk terminal registered a 9% increase in cargo handling in the first quarter of 2021, with volumes that exceed their record results of 2019.
DCT Gdansk continues with major investment programs, including an extension of the railway siding (expanding it from 4 to 7 tracks, each 750 m long).Source: PortalPortuario
