Strong winds forced the port of Koper to suspend its operations for some hours on Tuesday, 16 May. The suspension affected all transport segments, including rail, road and sea vessels. Rail freight companies active in the port might, as a result, face some train delays.

The suspension was imposed around 8 a.m. on 16 May, and it was already lifted by 3 p.m. when RailFreight.com communicated with the port. A spokesperson from the port explained that they did not expect significant delays from their side and that everything worked properly.

However, METRANS, which operates at the port, explained that customers should expect ā€œlimited or stopped traffic, complications and train delays all dayā€ due to the short disruption caused by the weather conditions. Consequently, some trains might need rescheduling, resulting in a mini backlog.
