The port of Koper, located in Slovenia, has gained much attention in recent years as a thriving centre for international trade. This vibrant port is the gateway to Central and Eastern Europe, connecting the Mediterranean to the rest of the world. With its strategic location and modern facilities, the Slovenian Port of Kopra has become an interesting alternative for European businesses. Transport times, from some destinations, are much faster to the port of Kopra than to our home town of Gdansk. For this reason, it is worth taking an interest in this option. 

Is transport through Koper cost-effective? 

Port Luka Koper ze względu na swoją świętną lokalizację w Europie jest oknem do transportu towarów do Europy środkowej i wschodniej. Ze względu na krótszą trasę do pokonania czas transportu jest nie tylko szybszy, ale może być również tańszy.  Często zdarza się, że serwisy z wielu miejsc w tym transporty z Chin są w niższych cenach niż frachty płynące do Hamburga czy do Gdańska. W tym przypadku należy jednak doliczyć droższy odwóz kontenera niż w przypadku np. Gdańska. Transportując kontener z Kopru do Polski warto wykorzystać przeładunek na rail transport, który posiada bardzo dobrą infrastrukturę w tym regionie. 

What is the distance between the port of Koper and Poland? 

 The distance between the port of Koper and Poland is approximately 800-900 kilometres to the border. This is a relatively short distance, especially compared to other European ports.

 The favourable location of the port of Koper as a gateway to Central and Eastern Europe provides access to developed transport networks and strategic transport routes.

Distance from the port of Copra to individual cities: 

Warsaw --> 1149 km

Krakow --> 945 km 

Wrocław --> 1012 km

Prague --> 811 km

Budapest --> 568 km 

Benefits of using maritime transport to the port of Koper

The port of Kopra also has a well-developed road and intermodal infrastructure. Containers from the port of Kopra can further be transshipped onto semi-trailers or trains, from where they will continue on to other European countries such as Poland. This is the largest port investment in the Adriatic Sea. In 2022, the port of Koper handled 1.2 MLN TEUs which is quite a large volume for such a small country as Slovenia with a population of 2.112 MLN. 

Oprócz dobrej infrastruktury to warto zwrócić uwagę na dużo szybsze czas transit time z wielu miejsc na świecie. W przypadku np. połączenia z Izraelem serwis do Kopru jest o 21 dni szybszy niż ten do Gdańska. Biorąc po uwagę nawet dalszą odległość odwozu kontenera to i tak zyskujemy tu bardzo wiele czasu. 

On which destinations is it worth considering using delivery through the port of Koper and how long is the transit time?

The port of Koper is strategically located on the Adriatic Sea, making it a convenient entry point to central and south-eastern Europe. Shipments heading to the Balkans, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria, Slovenia or Poland can benefit from convenient road and rail connections from the port of Koper.
