  • In order to enter the area of the port of Koper, a toll has to be paid for each truck and the required documentation has to be settled.  
  • During the time needed to settle the documents, the drivers park their trucks at the Truck Terminal, located in front of the entrance of the Port of Koper. Here they pay the port entrance toll and parking fee for the time they are to spend at the terminal.   
  • The trucks carrying livestock are an exception. They pay the costs of the toll, cleaning, washing and disinfection of the vehicle at the entrance to the port, immediately before they enter.
