Two ICTSI terminals to join FEPORT

Baltic Container Terminal in the Port of Gdynia and Adriatic Gate Container Terminal in the Port of Rijeka, both owned by International Container Terminal Services, are the newest members of the Federation of European Private Operators and Terminals.

   Two port terminal operators owned by International Container Terminal Services Inc. (ICTSI) will join the Federation of European Private Port Operators and Terminals (FEPORT), the organization said in a statement.
   The terminals are the Baltic Container Terminal (BCT) in the Port of Gdynia, Poland and Adriatic Gate Container Terminal (AGCT) in the Port of Rijeka, Croatia.
   With a current annual container handling capacity of around 750,000 TEUs, and a potential capacity of 1.2 million TEUs with further expansion, BCT is the leading container terminal in Poland and one of the largest in the Baltic region, according to FEPORT.
   ICTSI was awarded a concession by the Port Authority of Gdynia in May 2003 to develop, operate and manage BCT, which handles containerized, general, roll-on/roll-off (ro-ro), lift-on/lift-off (lo-lo), as well as heavy and oversized project cargo. BCT, which is 100 percent owned by ICTSI Capital B.V., employs 270 people and has an annual throughput of between 300,000 TEUs and 500,000 TEUs.
   AGCT, operated by Adriatic Gate under a 30-year strategic partnership between ICTSI and Luka Rijeka, employs 141 people and handles roughly 160,000 TEUs annually, making it the largest ocean cargo gateway in Croatia.
   “We are excited and feel privileged to join FEPORT. Our membership will strengthen the voice of terminals in European fora and also in our home markets,” BCT CEO Krzysztof Szymborski said of the announcement. “We also believe that through joint work and discussions with other FEPORT members, we will be able to contribute to positive development of the industry in Poland and Croatia but also in the rest of Europe.”
   “We are very glad to welcome BCT and ACGT as new members of FEPORT because we do believe that the more united terminal operators are, the better they will be able to raise awareness about the contribution of our industry to the European Economy,” added Gunther Bonz, president of FEPORT. “We are delighted to start a win-win relationship with them.”
   Founded in 1993, FEPORT represents the interests of a large variety of terminal operators and stevedoring companies performing operations and carrying out activities over 400 terminals in the seaports of the European Union.
