Yusen Logistics Hungary has announced the opening of its new branch office in Koper, Slovenia in order to expand its presence in Europe.

According to the Port of Koper’s News platform, the growing number of new Japanese investments in the region and the free trade agreement between the EU and Japan, could lead to an increase in the cargo volume handled by Japanese logistics providers.

The new office is strategically located, as the southern part of Central Eastern Europe – Austria, Hungary, Slovakia, Croatia, Romania – is well covered in terms of sea freight by the main North Adriatic ports: Koper (Slovenia), Trieste (Italy) and Rijeka (Croatia). These ports are within 70 km distance of each other.

According to Yusen Logistics approximately 60% of the region’s ocean freight volumes are handled by the Adriatic route. Additionally, Koper port handles the largest volume of the three Adriatic ports; its container volumes have significantly increased in the last 10 years, and 62 freight trains run in the region daily.

The multipurpose port features logistics resources with its 280ha of port area with 12 terminals, 3.4 km of operative quays and 26 berths, and 30 km of railway tracks serving and connecting all terminals.
