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 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, the world's largest container ships at the time, operated by the Maersk Line.
In 2015, the group of DCT Gdansk's clients was joined by 2 container shipping alliances - 2M (Maersk Line and MSC) and G6 (APL, Hapag-Lloyd, HMM, MOL, NYK, and OOCL), as well as the following shipping lines: UASC, Teamlines, Hamburg Sud, and DAL.
In 2016, the terminal handled 1,289,842 TEU.
In January 2015, the construction of a new terminal quay began, with the aim of doubling the annual throughput capacity of the DCT up to 3 million TEU. In October 2016, a special ceremony was held celebrating the completion of the investment, thanks to which the terminal became the largest container terminal in the Baltic Sea in terms of its technical parameters.

The terminal offers the following regular services:
