Latest project achievements at the Port of Koper

On 25th May 2021 newly completed infrastructural works were inaugurated at the Port of Koper, among these the new gate for trucks, which was financed within the project Napa4Core. Keynote speaker at the inaugural event was the Slovenian Minister of Infrastructure, Mr. Jernej Vrtovec, who set the logistics sector high on the ministry’s priority list: “The more we create conditions for the development of the port, the faster Slovenian logistics will develop. The government has determined a list of 187 important investments for starting the economy after the epidemic, of which 12 projects are in the Port of Koper.”

The investment for the new gate is worth 4.4 million euros, co-financed by the Connecting Europe Facility of the European Union, in the framework of the Napa4Core project. The third entrance for trucks was projected on the model of the already existing Sermin entrance, but with the addiction of an external parking lot for 44 trucks, available for truckers while preparing the documentation for entering the port.

The new gate is already the third entrance to the port and it’s intended to serve mainly container trucks, which represent more than half of the trucks entering the port, counting a total of 330.000 trucks in 2020.

This new infrastructure will improve internal logistics and traffic safety, while relieving the burden on city roads: “Every time the port expands, the city loses something, but the new entrance is a win-win situation, as there will be fewer trucks on the city streets,” said the mayor of Koper, Mr. Aleš Bržan.
