Luka Koper throughput up 15 percent to 78,532 TEUs in January 2017
Despite a strong wind that obstructed the work at the container terminal for some days in January, Luka Koper registered a record monthly throughput, namely 78,532 TEUs which is 15-percent more than reported in January last year, the company said in its press release.
The achieved results required considerable efforts by all involved in the work process, especially by considering the infrastructural- and logistic challenges represented by the construction works going on at the terminal and by constant growth in throughput. Namely, Luka Koper have just accomplished the construction of crane rails for the new RMG cranes (overhead travelling cranes on rails which will operate soon) whereas prior to that, Luka Koper build two new railway tracks and extended three already existing tracks at the terminal.
In addition, Luka Koper increased the warehouse surface area for containers at the same terminal and increased the capacity of the depot for empty containers in the terminal’s hinterland. These investments, along with those performed over the last two years, are all aimed at increasing the capacity of the container terminal over 1.3 million TEU.
