From 10 May, TFG Transfracht will start a new set-up for Koper and connect its AlbatrosExpress network with direct links to the port in Slovenia. In the future, containers can be transported to and from Koper four times a week from the region of Austria as well as southern Germany for the first time in a regular timetable in direct traffic and consequently with shorter transit times, the company announced in a press release.

 From the terminals Enns and Salzburg, there will be two weekly departures for import and export. In addition, the existing link between Munich and Salzburg connects southern Germany with the port of Koper. The connection between Enns and Salzburg, which will be created by the regular service to Koper, will also offer further options.

“By expanding the connection to the port of Koper, we are meeting the growing demand of our customers for shipments to and from the Adriatic ports. We are pleased to offer our customers even more flexibility for their transports,” said Oswin Stummvoll, Head of Regional Division Austria TFG Transfracht.

TFG Transfracht is the market leader in containerised seaport hinterland traffic of German seaports. With its nationwide AlbatrosExpress network, TFG Transfracht connects the ports of Hamburg, Bremerhaven, Wilhelmshaven and Koper (Slovenia) with more than 15,000 locations in Germany, Austria and Switzerland on a daily basis.
