DCT Gdansk becomes ‘Baltic Hub’
Fastest growing container terminal operator in the Baltics announces new name to endorse its ambitions to become THE Baltic Hub
DCT Gdansk, the largest and fastest-growing container complex in the Baltic Sea region has a new name: ‘Baltic Hub’. The terminal operator announced its name change that better represents its ambitions to be THE hub for the region, both by land and by sea, to staff just two weeks after it had celebrated its 15th anniversary. With the completion of its third deepsea terminal by 2025, Baltic Hub will become one of the largest container terminal hubs in Europe.
Since its launch 15 years ago, the terminal operator has experienced exponential growth from having just one deep-water quay and a capacity of 500,000 TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent Unit containers), to becoming a true ‘Baltic Hub’ with two deepsea quays that handled more than 2.09 million TEUs in 2021. At this time, Baltic Hub has 1,300 meters of quay, 14 Ship-to-Shore (STS) cranes and an annual capacity of 2.7 million TEUs.
In addition, Baltic Hub has become a transport gateway to Central and Eastern Europe, with inland destinations such as the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Germany. This is a result of continuous investments over the years, which will elevate its rail capacity from its current 750,000 TEU to over one million TEUs in the near future.
“We are extremely proud of the terminal today, but we readily acknowledge that today’s Baltic Hub would not exist without the hard work and commitment of all our staff as well as the faith and loyalty of our stakeholders, customers, lenders, suppliers and local communities over these 15 years,” said Charles Baker.
