Minister of Investment and Development, Mr. Jerzy Kwieciński celebrates with DCT Gdańsk the handling the 9th million container

28-th May 2018

The largest container terminal in Poland and the Baltic - DCT Gdansk has marked the handling of 9 million TEU (20-foot equivalent unit) since opening. Achieving such a result within ten years of operational activity is a testimony to the continuous, dynamic development of the terminal. On this occasion, the Management Board of DCT Gdansk SA, with the honor of hosting the Minister of Investment and Development, Mr. Jerzy Kwieciński, would like to thank all the clients, partners, contractors and authorities, without whom this success would not be possible. The further development of DCT Gdansk container terminal is crucial not only for the region, but also for the entire Polish economy and its entrepreneurs who are more and more visibly increasing the potential for international economic exchange. “The DCT terminal that we see today, is the product of constant investment year after year to create a true gateway to the world for Poland. Foreign direct investment such as this requires a stable and clear regulatory framework over the long-term. I would like to thank the employees of DCT Gdansk for their hard work and also our customers for their support in developing DCT into a hub for world trade.”- says Cameron Thorpe, Chief Executive Officer of DCT Gdansk SA. “Thanks to the construction of DCT Gdansk terminal ten years ago and continuous investments in its development, Poland can now effectively compete with the largest ports in Europe, to the benefit of state budget. Handling 1,6M TEU in 2017, DCT has established itself as No 16 among top European container ports. Current growth dynamics, which quarter to quarter exceeds 40%, allow us to believe that this position will be at least maintained. It will have a direct influence on the increase in income to Polish budget due to customs, VAT and excise duty. In the first quarter of 2018 it was already 2.1 billion Polish zloty (EUR 470 million)” – adds Adam Żołnowski, Chief Financial Officer of DCT Gdansk. Today DCT Gdansk has 1.3km of deep-water quay-line, eleven STS cranes, and handles over 460 vessels per year, including over 100 direct calls from Asia by the largest container vessels in the world. Now the terminal is implementing the next investment – T2b project, which includes buying new terminal equipment, extending the yard area, fully optimizing and automating the gate complex for truck drivers and significantly upgrading rail capacity.   DCT Gdansk, Gateway to Poland and Central, Eastern Europe.    About DCT: DCT Gdansk enables Poland to be connected to the largest shipping trade-lane between Europe and Asia. A vital piece of direct foreign investment, ensuring that Polish goods can trade with China more efficiently, reducing cost, providing more competitive delivery times and a lower carbon footprint per container than alternative ports. In 2017 DCT Gdansk handled almost 1.6m TEU, with direct calls by the largest ships afloat. DCT Gdansk is the only terminal in the Baltic Sea capable of handling ships of this size. DCT does not just serve Poland but is also one of the most efficient ways to serve the Baltic Sea market via transshipment and also the most cost competitive way to serve the hinterland markets of the Czech Republic and Slovakia and elsewhere. With a track-record of continuous development and expenditure in terminal infrastructure and modern handling equipment, DCT Gdansk is also actively involved in activities for the protection of the environment and the local community, recognizing in them the foundation of sustainable socio-economic development.

DCT GDANSK PLANS FOR GROWTH IN 2018

13-th February 2018

In 2017 DCT Gdansk saw a growth rate of 24%, with volumes growing to just under 1.6 million TEU (20-foot equivalent unit). 2017 saw the full operational introduction of the second terminal, T2, which doubled capacity. “This facilitated the continued growth of our relationship with the 2M Alliance and then in May the arrival of the OCEAN Alliance. Having the world’s two largest Alliances provide direct calls with the largest ships in their fleet is a real testament to the vision of building DCT Gdansk” - says Cameron Thorpe, CEO of DCT Gdansk. For 2018, DCT continues to plan for growth and the terminal has initiated its ‘T2B program’ –due to roll-out over the next 3 years. The program highlights include Two additional ship-to-shore cranes arriving in Q3 of 2018, enabling the T2 berth to deploy 7 cranes (all 25-wide outreach) by the end of this year. In support there will be an expansion of the yard area with 5 additional all-electric e-RTGs. The main gate will be fully automated with optical character recognition (OCR) cameras registering vehicles and containers arriving against bookings made in the VBS. The next key development will be to significantly increase rail capability with rail-sidings being extended to 750m and the number of sidings increased from 4 to 6; total siding capacity will expand by 80% to 4.5km. The expansion will be supported by dedicated electrified RMG handling equipment as well as OCR cameras. “The new investments are all focused on constant improvement in customer service levels across key areas. However that’s not all, over the next two years there will be a second fairway approach to the Port of Gdansk, which DCT will have access to. This will further reduce the time from pilot-station to berth, enhancing the total port turn-around time of the ULCV’s calling. Longer-term, DCT has considerable ability to expand both berth and yard footprint, so we can effectively continue to grow in-line with market demand” – comments Cameron Thorpe, CEO of DCT Gdansk. DCT will provide regular updates on the successive phases of T2B investment project.   About DCT: The development of DCT Gdansk since 2007 has unlocked direct access to the fastest growing region in Europe. Previously, Polish cargo had to come a long way by road, rail or transshipment from a port in the North Sea, adding time and cost; DCT Gdansk ensures that Poland is connected to the largest shipping trade-lane between Europe and Asia. The region’s goods can trade with Asia efficiently, reducing cost, giving more competitive delivery times and at the same time providing a lower carbon footprint per container. In 2017 DCT Gdansk handled 1.6m TEU, with direct calls by the largest ships afloat. DCT Gdansk is the only terminal in the Baltic Sea capable of handling ships of this size. A vital piece of direct foreign investment, the terminal facilitates the generation of more than PLN 6 billion to the Polish state budget receipts from VAT, excise and customs duties. DCT doesn’t just serve Poland, its ideal geographical location means that DCT Gdansk serves as a transshipment hub for the upper Baltic markets providing a cost-effective solution for the Baltic States, Eastern Sweden, Finland and St. Petersburg in Russia. It is also one of the most efficient ways to serve key hinterland markets in the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Belarus. These three pillars of trade; the strong domestic market, the growing hinterland market and expanding upper-Baltic transshipment are propelling the growth at DCT. In late 2016 DCT Gdansk completed and opened its T2 facility, doubling capacity to 3million TEU annually and is now undertaking further expansion with its T2B program.
