___________________________
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: Daniel Halas

Besix to construct a new deepwater berth in Gdansk

DCT Gdansk has finalized the tender process for the design and construction of a new berth and the adjacent container stacking yards. The winning bid came from the N.V. BESIX company. The BESIX Group is Belgium’s largest group operating in the construction of infrastructure, environmental projects and roads. N.V. BESIX is the BESIX Group’s biggest subsidiary. Among other projects, the BESIX Group carried out such big infrastructure and marine projects as: The Ras Laffan Port expansion in Qatar, the construction of quay walls and dredging in Sohar, Oman and in Port Amazone Rotterdam in the Netherlands as well as the expansion of the Belgian Port of Zeebrugge. As a joint venture member, N.V. BESIX was responsible for the modernization of the South Hook LNG Terminal in the United Kingdom. This project, worth over 250 million euros, consisted of the quay’s renovation and modernization, building a 200 meter long extension of the existing berth and the construction of new mooring and berthing facilities. In addition to the activities of BESIX and its other subsidiaries in Benelux and France, the Group is active in Europe, North and Central Africa, the Middle East, Central Asia and Australia. The new 650m long berth, which will be designed and constructed by the tender winner, will increase DCT’s annual handling capacity up to 3 million TEU in the first stage of the construction. The new terminal berth will be ready to operate in 2016. It will be equipped with 5 STS cranes, delivered by Liebherr Container Cranes Ltd., 16 RTG cranes and additional yard equipment.
