Strong March in Koper
The container terminal of the Port of Koper on the Adriatic Sea processed more than 97,000 teu in March this year, exceeding the mark set exactly three years ago, in March 2018, when slightly more than 92,300 teu were handled.

"It will increase the terminal’s annual capacity to 1.3 million teu, and, with additional improvements of work processes, to one and a half million teu," said Metod Podkrižnik, who heads the commercial and operational segments on Luka Koper's management board of. (cd)
