With traffic from the Slovenian port of Koper continuing to increase, the terminal will soon reach its maximum capacity of around 200,000 TEU.

Plans are therefore being developed to construct a second terminal, which should be fully operational by 2023, at a cost of €25-30m.

The new terminal will open in stages, with reach stackers being used to handle containers in the initial phase of operation and gantry cranes added at a later stage.

Further growth is expected from 2026 onwards after the opening of the Graz - Klagenfurt Koralm line, which passes alongside the terminal.
