Koper is the only port on the Adriatic that handled more than 1 million TEU in one year. Over the past two years, the Koper Container Terminal has experienced a period of intensive investment. The expansion of the quay and additional storage facilities has been completed, with the latest upgrade being the installation of two STS spuer post-panamax cranes in May this year. All investments were made with the terminal fully operational, which is an achievement in itself. It is reported by Railway Supply magazine with reference to Newport.


Further growth in container handling and a high level of productivity will largely depend on the Pier I expansion project. These investments include additional berths and storage yards at the northern end of Pier I, the acquisition of additional pier cranes, the expansion of the terminal’s railway station, the expansion of the terminal’s internal storage facilities, and the acquisition of various handling equipment.

The increase in capacity is in response to the expectations of shipowners and other users of the port, and the company is trying to maintain its competitive edge so that the Koper container terminal remains a leader in the Adriatic.

The new development cycle of the container terminal is in line with the construction schedule of the Koper-Divacha railway line, which is due to be put into operation in 2026.
