MOL Quasar, featuring over 13,000 teu capacity, stops at DCT Gdansk’s deepwater container terminal in Poland. This is the second ship of the G6 Alliance to call at the terminal within the new service of the alliance.

Port of Gdansk handled its first G6 Alliance-affiliated container ship – Hapag Lloyd’s 13,167 TEU Hong Kong Express – 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.

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).
