Transport and Logistics

The position of Slovenia in Europe, favourable transport infrastructure, and good knowledge of transportation, distribution, warehousing and IT services at a reasonable cost offers good opportunities in logistics. Important European road and rail transport corridors intersect in Slovenia. Business zones are located throughout the country near the highway network, maritime cargo port and airports. Large international retail and distribution companies are using logistics hubs as a European logistics gateway from over seas. Also a pharma giant chose Slovenia for their biggest pharmaceutical logistics hub and a digital logistics department for the whole world.

The Port of Koper is Slovenias only maritime cargo port and important gateway for supply of CEE markets. It has a leading position as the northern Adriatic port with the highest annual throughput of containers, one of the largest automotive terminals in the Mediterranean and gateway for more than 20 global car producers. The Port of Koper has been rapidly building new cargo-handling and storage facilities and will allocate about 400 million EUR in the development investments until 2030.

The modernisation of the existing transport infrastructure is a priority and co-financing from the EU funds is available for the projects.

The motorway density in Slovenia is already above the EU27 average. However, additional highway projects have started. Building of a new parallel tunnel tube through the Karavanke mountain range between Austria and Slovenia with total length of 7,887 m and the extended motorway network called the Third Development Axis running from Austria straight down to Croatia.

Railway infrastructure modernisation is high on the list of national priorities. The governments development plan includes a thorough upgrade of the railway network, increasing its capacity and building new railway tracks. Currently, the most important railway modernisation project is the construction of the second railway track between the Port of Koper and central Slovenia. The construction of track between Koper and Divača is planned to be finished in 2033.

The important development and projects with the co-financing from the EU funds are expected in the field of sustainable mobility. Investments totalling 5.6 billion EUR are planned in the next six years for transport. The current situation in use of public passenger transport in Slovenia is bad and achieving Slovenia's long-term legally binding goals in the field of climate change will not be possible without measures in strengthening of the development of public passenger transport and investments in infrastructure for passengers and cyclists, for public transport stations and stops and for park and ride (P+R) systems.
