Transport and Logistics

Important European transport corridors intersect in Slovenia. The modernisation of the existing infrastructure is a priority and co-financing from the EU Cohesion Fund is available for projects.

Railway infrastructure modernisation is high on the list of national priorities. The government’s development plan includes a thorough upgrade of railway networks and construction of a second railway track between the port of Koper and central Slovenia. In line with the investment programme proposal, the estimated investment cost of constructing the second track is EUR 1,3 billion EUR. The formation of a public private partnership for building the second track is under discussion.

Freight traffic and the rail links between the Adriatic Sea and the landlocked CEE countries offer plenty of opportunities. Shipping to the Port of Koper from Asia means gaining up to ten days on cargo ships bound for Europe’s northern ports. The port facilities comprise of 12 modern and fully equipped specialised terminals, indoor and outdoor warehouses for general cargo and custom-built warehouses. Special advantages are available in 2.8 km2 of the port’s economic zone with 323,000 m2 of covered warehousing and slightly less than 1 million m2 of open-air storage. There is a new passenger terminal and the master plan for the expansion of the extension of piers 1 and 2 and a new car parking area.

The motorway density in Slovenia is above the EU27 average and Slovenia is easily reached from anywhere in Europe by car or lorry within a day or two. The government has also announced additional highway projects, the extended motorway network running from Austria straight down to Croatia. 
Nine business zones are located throughout the country next to motorways to support the national goal to become a key European logistics hub.
