The event, which coincided with the 40th anniversary of the Gydnia terminal, was marked by the loading of the milestone MSC container to MSC Veronique.
“As a gateway terminal serving the Polish economy, we are extremely pleased to have reached this latest milestone. More than hitting our targets, this new record highlights Baltic Container Terminal’s capability to continuously outpace market growth, and our readiness to serve the vibrant Polish economy and the Eastern European markets,” said Wojciech Szymulewicz, BCT ceo.
In May 2003, ICTSI was awarded a 20-year concession by the Port Authority of Gydnia to develop, operate and manage the container terminal in Pomerania, Gydnia, Poland. ICTSI purchased Baltycki Terminal Kontenerowy (BCT), which had held the lease to the terminal.
The Port of Gdynia Authority and the Center for European Union Transport Projects recently signed a contract for the reconstruction and electrification of the port’s rail access, to boost the port’s operations which will include rebuilding the intermodal terminal to complement BCT’s operations from the land side.
To enable BCT to cater for growing demands, in the pipeline is new handling equipment on both sea and landside, rehabilitation of the present quay, deepening of harbour basins, additional storage areas, and IT systems.
