30 years of regular container railway connection in Koper

02.10.2015

October 2nd 1985 was the day the first container train within a regular connection to Port of Koper left our port for the final destination Franz Welz Terminal in Salzburg, Austria.

This important achievement was greeted with special event for business partners and VIPs. The train left Koper every Wednesday and headed back from Salzburg every Friday. The container throughput in 1985 was 47.000 TEU, which represented 10 % of the total Koper port throughput.

Today we are approaching the number 700.000 TEU with some 24 container trains daily entering and exiting the port. From January to September 2015 the throughput of Koper Container Terminal reached 590.266 TEU, which is 15,7 % more than in the same period last year.
