___________________________
Dear Customers,

Please be informed that as from 15th of October 2014 there will be a change in the process of export containers clearance at the request of Customs Office.

The existing ship owner export hold Line Export Permission, so-called LEP, will be abolished. So far, removing the export hold in NAVIS system was released once MRN document number was entered.

Subsequently, lack of export hold LEP means that each full export container entering DCT by any means of transport will be ready to be loaded on a previously booked ship. It is the sole responsibility of the exporter to ensure that all procedures and formalities are completed, and the cargo in the container is cleared before the ship’s cut-off deadline.

Customs Office reserves the right to inspect documents and cargo and in case of doubts to impose customs hold, the so-called CEH - Customs Export Hold. The status of the container can be verified on line on DCT webpage: http://dctgdansk.pl/strefa-klienta/sprawdz-kontener-online/

This change applies to export containers handled by all MAERSK Group ship owners: Maersk Line, Safmarine and Seago Line. Aim is to harmonize and simplify customs procedures in marine terminals in Poland and Europe.

We are sure that the new process will be much easier for you and will reduce the number of additional activities related to verification of the status of container loading.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact respective Customer Service representatives of Maersk Line, Safmarine and Seago Line.

Yours faithfully,
DCT Gdansk S.A.

SHIFT MANAGER: Robert Marszałek

Banks to provide up to €290 million for the development DCT Gdansk

DCT Gdansk has finalized the financing process for the expansion of the biggest container terminal in the Baltic Sea, by volume handled in 2013. The group of commercial and development banks will finance the investment and provide up to €290 million for the project. Conclusion of the financing process, together with the appointment of NV Besix SA as general contractor, are important milestones making way for the start of the investment’s construction phase. DCT Gdansk 2016 The second facility in DCT Gdansk, which will be fully operational in 2016, will allow the terminal to meet growing demand for deep-sea services in Central-Eastern Europe. The new 650m long berth will increase DCT’s annual handling capacity to up to 3 million TEU in the first stage of construction. New berth at DCT Gdansk will be able to handle Ultra Large Container Vessels of capacity exceeding 18000 TEU. It will be equipped with 5 STS cranes and the required additional yard equipment. “We are approaching the completion of the project’s initial phase which directly precedes the construction works. The decision to develop the existing DCT Gdansk container terminal is a result of growing need for more efficient and economic transport solutions in the Baltic region, able to effectively compete with the Northern European container ports’ services. We are proud to be the market leader in bringing about innovation in the CEE region’s  trade patterns,” said DCT Gdansk CEO Maciek Kwiatkowski.
