A crucial year for DCT Gdansk

16-th January 2017

Deepwater Container Terminal Gdansk ended 2016 with an operational result at the level of approximately 1,3 million TEU (20-foot containers). It is a record in the history of the terminal and the entire Polish containerization. Already in October 2016 the number of containers handled exceeded the overall result in the previous year (1,068 million TEU). The achievement of such a result was influenced by many factors, from the growing need for directs calls of oceanic container vessels in the Baltic to the visible growth of cargo targeted at Eastern and Central Europe markets. Over the last few years DCT Gdansk has continually expanded the portfolio of clients. Attracting new business partners as well as the increase in container handling proves that DCT Gdansk is an attractive transshipment hub for the shipping lines delivering cargo in that part of the world. Last year was special not only because of the record-breaking results but also due to the fact that one of the largest investments in Pomerania – the construction of the second deepwater berth (T2) in DCT Gdansk, was successfully finalized. T2 investment, completed on time and on budget, enriched the terminal with the next berth, new yards and state-of-the-art terminal equipment, doubling DCT’s annual handling capacity from 1,5 million to 3 million TEU. After finalizing the investment, at the end of last year the CEO position of retiring Maciek Kwiatkowski was taken over by Cameron Thorpe who looks into 2017 with a great hope – “With the opening of Terminal 2, we now have the prospect to take it to the next level – use this potential and double in size. DCT Gdansk has proven itself a game-changer for the Baltic, opening the market to direct calls from Asia and providing access for Polish importers and exporters as well as enhanced transshipment access across the Baltic for the Shipping Lines. Our challenge now is to attract new services and to push further into central Europe, whilst retaining and consolidating our position with our existing customers.”

In early 2015 Cameron moved to London Gateway in the UK where he became the CEO. Cameron stated “I’m very excited by the opportunity that DCT presents - a container terminal that is helping to drive the Polish economy to be more efficient, with a global reputation as the most professional facility in the Baltic Sea. With our T2 facility now open, we will further enhance our excellent customer service and facilitate intermodal trade as the premier hub port in the region.” Prior to joining the terminal industry Cameron worked for P&O Nedlloyd a global container shipping company.

Current situation at DCT Gdansk caused by the delays of oceanic vessels

9-th September 2016

Dear Sirs, Last week we informed you about a very high level of the yard occupancy in DCT Gdansk container terminal (exceeding 90 per cent) caused by the recurring delays of oceanic ships – even up to 60 hours. Oceanic vessels arriving in recent time with such a delay (even up to 2,5 days) could not remain without an influence on the yard, gate and rail operations. We have made every effort to minimalise service delays at the terminal. For that purpose, we sped up starting operations on E1-E3 yards at the new T2 berth and also using two additional RTG cranes. We run all of our operational capacity, which is used to its limits, in order to reduce the effects that you might experience because of the vessels’ delays, on which DCT terminal has no influence. Thanks to employees’ involvement, at the weekend on rail we managed to handle 1360 containers, while the maximum assumed was 1250. Nevertheless, trains which do not have a permanent booking time, might be handled with a delay (1-2 days) for approx. two weeks. Trains with permanent booking time are handled according to the plan without any major delays. The subsequent yards at the new T2 berth are gradually becoming operational and the new terminal equipment is being started. The situation will normalize within two weeks. We would like to ask for your understanding and assure you that we want our cooperation to be at the highest level despite the difficulties, the causes of which are beyond the control of DCT Gdansk terminal.   DCT Gdansk S.A.

The occupancy of yards in DCT – announcement

1-st September 2016

Dear Sirs, We would like to inform that in recent days the occupancy of the yards in DCT Gdansk container terminal has exceeded the level of 90 per cent. It is directly caused by the recurring delays of oceanic vessels – even up to 60 hours. The delays had an influence on the imbalance between operations of import and export containers, including the shipping lines’ decisions to limit the loading of full export and empty containers. That is why, in the next few days (especially after the weekend 3-4 September 2016) DCT terminal might experience considerable difficulties in the process of yard, gate and rail operations. Please take into consideration the above factors while planning pick ups and drop offs of the containers. We assure you that we make every effort to minimalize the effects of this situation, therefore the Management Board has made the decision to speed up the process of starting operations on some yards at the new T2 berth, which are going to start this weekend.  DCT Gdansk SA
