THE Deepwater Container Terminal (DCT) Gdansk has reached the milestone of handling 15 million TEU since it first opened in 2007, reports London's Container Management

The facility was owned and operated by Cosco Shipping and was loaded aboard the 21,000-TEU Cosco Shipping Galaxy.
'A line of containers that could more than twice circle the earth's circumference, it is a great success for our employees,' said DCT Gdansk CEO Cameron Thorpe.
'Of equal importance to us is that each of those 15 million TEU was a customer who used our services, and it's a testament to their ongoing support and belief in DCT Gdansk that has contributed to DCT Gdansk becoming the Baltic hub for logistics,' said Mr Thorpe.
Cosco Shipping Galaxy sails as part of the Ocean Alliance service, which provides a weekly connection between the ports of Korea, China and Singapore with Gdansk.
'Last year the pandemic caused turbulence across the global transport and logistics industry, but despite this, we were pleased with our year-on-year growth in local full containers, and we are encouraged by the further nine per cent growth we have seen so far this year, with volumes tracking above our previous best,' said Mr Thorpe.
