The Deepwater Container Terminal Gdansk became operational on 1 June 2007 with the arrival of the first commercial container ship. In the first years of operation, the terminal specialised in handling feeder ships. Since January 2010, container ships from the Far East with a capacity of 8,000 TEU have stopped at the Port of Gdansk every week. The direct connection with Asia contributed to the development of the DCT, which became a Baltic hub and one of the fastest developing terminals in the world.
In 2011, the terminal began to handle E class container ships with a capacity of 15,500 TEU, and in 2013, Triple-E class container ships with a capacity of 18,000 TEU, operated by the Maersk Line. Today, it still handles the world's largest container ships, with a capacity exceeding 20,000 TEU.
In 2015, the group of DCT Gdansk's clients was joined by 2 container shipping alliances – 2M (Maersk Line and MSC) and the G6 alliance (APL, Hapag-Lloyd, HMM, MOL, NYK, and OOCL), active at the time, as well as the following shipping lines: UASC, Team Lines, Hamburg Sud, and DAL. In 2017, the G6 alliance was replaced by the Ocean Alliance (OOCL, COSCO, CMS CGM, Evergreen).
In 2017, the terminal handled 1,579,123 TEU.
In January 2015, the construction of a new terminal quay began. The aim was to double the annual throughput capacity of the DCT up to 3 million TEU. In October 2016, a special ceremony was held to celebrate the completion of the investment thanks to which the terminal became the largest container terminal in the Baltic Sea in terms of transshipment volume.
