On Monday 19 December 2022 an agreement was signed at the Port of Gdynia between Port of Gdynia Authority S.A. and International Container Terminal Services, Inc.
International Container Terminal Services from the Philippines has again become the lessee of the land on which the Baltic Container Terminal is located. ICTSI will manage the container terminal for the next 30 years.
Selecting a new operator of the BCT terminal was one of the most important tasks of the Port of Gdynia Authority in 2022 – the year of the centenary of the Port of Gdynia. Indeed, the agreement concluded today will set out the development of the BCT terminal for the next decades. The new operator will lease plots of land with a total area of approximately 60 hectares. Following a tender procedure, PoGA Gdynia accepted the offer made by ICTSI and, thanks to the agreement concluded today, this company will be the lessee of the land at Helskie Quay from 1 June.
“The long and complicated procedure for the selection of the lessee of the Baltic Container Terminal in Gdynia has come to an end,” emphasised Jacek Sadaj, President of the Port of Gdynia. “I am very pleased that in this special jubilee year for the Port, in which we are celebrating our 100th birthday, I can emphatically say that one hundred years is only the beginning and today turn these words into action. This is the largest and longest lasting contract we have had the pleasure of signing at the Port of Gdynia. This agreement cements a stable and secure development for the Port of Gdynia. It is very important to us that such a stable contractor as ICTSI has decided to enter the tender. We are convinced that this sends a signal, also to other contractors, that Gdynia is a good and stable place to do their business.”
The Baltic Container Terminal is of particular importance to the Port of Gdynia, as its launch on 29 October 1979 marked the beginning of the development of intermodal transport in Poland and enabled a strong centre of the modern logistics sector to emerge in the Tricity. At the time, the Port of Gdynia was one of the pioneers of containerisation of transport on a global scale.
ICTSI currently operates in more than 30 locations, in 20 countries, on 6 continents. It has been operating in the Port of Gdynia since 2003.
