First Round Table Meeting of the COSMOS Project conducted in Ljubljana on April 23, 2013, first Intermodal Road Map completed

The Round Table convened high-level representatives of the Slovenian intermodal industry and stakeholders who discussed recent achievements and future prospects of intermodal transport in Slovenia and achieved a consent about the general growth perspective and relevant measures that will be necessary to foster the increase of intermodal rail services.

Participants were representatives of the Ministry of Transport, the Public Agency for Railway, the infrastructure unit and the cargo division of Slovenske železnice, Adria Transport - a joint venture of the Port of Koper and GKE, the intermodal operators Adria Kombi and Metrans, the Port of Koper Authority as well as the Forwarders Association / Association of Chamber of Commerce and the COSMOS Partners Gysev Cargo and KombiConsult.

 

The meeting was moderated by COSMOS project manager Uwe Sondermann (KombiConsult, Frankfurt am Main) who concluded the following results:

 

Participants enjoyed the lively discussion and common objective to draw conclusion on measures for the further improvement of the intermodal sector in Slovenia
Participants agreed to the major findings of the draft "road map" that was prepared by COSMOS partners and which are:

 

  • 6 per cent increase of the total annual intermodal volume (2011/2010)
  • Strategic position of Ljubljana as a rail hub on the cross roads between maritime and continental transport flows
  • Port of Koper as access port to Balkan countries, Austria, Hungary Czech and Slovak Republic
  • Basically trade-oriented economy with skilled workforce

Participants support the general growth path of the sector in Slovenia, but the realisation would require some work
Measures of primary importance are:

 

  • Koper - Divaca 500 -> 550 m train length by improving one station
  • Electrification Pragersko - Hodos
  • Removal of 20 tons axle load sections (punctual measures)
  • Koper Divaca 2nd rail line

As a result of the Round Table and further stakeholder consultation the 1st Intermodal Road Map for Slovenia has been elaborated within the time frame of the COSMOS project. The Intermodal Road Map for Slovenia can be downloaded in the media area.

 

COSMOS stands for Cooperative Solutions for Managing Optimized Services and is the reply to the market needs for improved cooperative intermodal freight services in South-East Europe. Further Round Table meetings will be organised within the COSMOS project in Czech Re-public, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria and Croatia in the next 12 months.
