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.
