Notice about railway transport restrictions on the Slovenian railways – update 09.09.2021

Based on the statement below from the Slovenian railways, we would like to inform you about a 12-24 hour train delay in both import and export directions from/to Koper due to railway transport restrictions on the Slovenian railways. Unfortunately, because of continuous delays, we were forced to reorganize our trains from/to Koper and cancel 5 pairs of trains.

We are still monitoring the situation but we would like to ensure you that we are trying to minimize the impact of the train delays with all our efforts.
 
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.

From 23th of August 2021 until the 15th of January, on the line Ljubljana – Sežana border on the section Ljubljana – Brezovica one track will be closed.

Major obstacles to the implementation of the operational timetable are envisaged in the Ljubljana area and in the Ljubljana – Divača section.
