With the aim of increasing storage capacity for vehicles and competitive advantage, there are currently two construction sites in the Port of Koper, soon the third will start.
The new garage will have a capacity of 6,000 parking spaces, which will increase the annual throughput for around 162,000 cars. The construction of the garage will meet the increasing demand of customers for covered storage areas, while increasing the unique storage capacity and improving the internal logistics of car transshipment.
In addition, two more projects are underway to increase the capacity of the car terminal: the construction of a berth for RO-RO ships (car carriers) in the third basin and a new group of rail tracks in the hinterland of the third basin.
