G6 Alliance Starts Calling at Gdansk

Poland’s Port of Gdansk handled its first G6 Alliance-affiliated container ship – Hapag Lloyd’s 13,167 TEU Hong Kong Express – which berthed at DCT Gdansk on August 11.

The maiden call follows the recent announcement by G6 Alliance to include Port of Gdansk in their Loop 7 port rotation, a weekly service calling at six European ports in the following rotation: Rotterdam, Hamburg, Gdansk, Gothenburg, Antwerp and Southampton, before crossing the Indian Ocean to Asia.

In Asia, Loop 7 calls Qingdao, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Yantian and Singapore.

”For the last five years DCT Gdansk was building its position of the biggest container hub in the Baltic Sea,” said Maciek Kwiatkowski, CEO of DCT Gdansk.

”Attractiveness of our unique ability to handle ultra large container carriers coming directly from Far East has been confirmed by G6 Alliance’s decision to include Gdansk call in their Loop 7 port rotation. We are very happy to welcome all partners of G6 Alliance in Gdansk and we are sure that this is just a beginning of our long and mutually beneficial cooperation.” 

The G6 Alliance includes APL, Hyundai Merchant Marine (HMM), Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL), Hapag-Lloyd, Nippon Yusen Kaisha (NYK) and Orient Overseas Container Line (OOCL).
