ICTSI’s Rijeka Container Terminal Continues Growth

ICTSI’s Rijeka container terminal continues growth

Rijeka, Croatia (PortSEurope) August 16, 2020 – The Rijeka container terminal Brajdica, operated by Adriatic Gate Container Terminal (AGCT), has managed to increase traffic despite the Covid-19 coronavirus crisis, which has had drastic effects on global supply chains. Future performance should improve with the completion of works on the construction of an intermodal container terminal, modernization of a railway tunnel and freight station in a
month’s time. Capacity is set to increase from the current 100,000 to 300,000 TEU. Emmanuel Papagiannakis, AGCT CEO, said to the local press, “Rijeka is increasingly positioned as a central port for Central Europe. It is important to note, as far as cargo is concerned, that only 30% comes from the Croatian market. So there is traffic from Hungary, the Czech Republic, Serbia, Austria – the future is tied to Central Europe”. Of great economic importance will be the completion of works on the project of expanding the railway tunnel and station on Brajdica worth €35.6 million. Works have begun on the connecting road for the second new Rijeka terminal on the Zagreb coast, in the western part of the city.
