Acquisition   That is considered to be the largest container terminal in Poland

PSA International, the Polish Development Fund (PFR) and the IFM Global Infrastructure Fund (GIF) managed by IFM Investors, have signed an Agreement, subject to formal approval by the relevant competition authorities, to jointly acquire 100% of the shares of DCT Gdańsk.


That is considered to be the largest container terminal in Poland, from Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets (MIRA) managed fund Global Infrastructure Fund II, MTAA Super, AustralianSuper and Statewide Super.

DCT Gdańsk is situated at the crossroads of the Baltic deep-sea trading routes and holds a strategic position as a major gateway into Poland and Central-Eastern European markets.

Construction of the Port began in 2005 with the outgoing shareholders facilitating the greenfield development of the port and overseeing 13 years of transformational growth.

Following a significant capital expenditure programme, the port’s capacity doubled in 2016 with the completion of a second quay.

Container volumes have grown steadily over the years to reach 1.9 million Twenty-Foot Equivalent Units (TEUs) in 2018.

DCT Gdańsk is the fastest growing container port in Europe and is ranked amongst the 15 largest container ports on the continent.

With a quay length of 1,306 meters and a maximum depth of 17 meters, the terminal is well-equipped to handle the largest container vessels calling at the terminal already today.
