Notice about railway transport restrictions on the Slovenian railways, 15.1.2021

Let us inform you in the enclosed statement received from the Slovenian railways about the current railway transport restrictions in Slovenia. The permeability of transport lines is limited by several factors such as the implementation of the bypass routes through the border crossings of
Sentilij and Sezana, by various maintenance works, and by the closure of Karavanke tunnel.

Due to this extraordinary ongoing situation in the Port of Koper, which we informed you about in Newsletter No.02/2021, we were forced to reorganize our trains from/to Koper.

The restrictions mentioned above may have an effect on the transit time of our trains from/to Koper.

In case of any questions regarding the actual planning of your transport orders and transit times from/to Koper, please do not hesitate to contact our Customer Service Department.
