Modeling Containers Throughput in Port of Koper

The global container transport saw an increase of 8 to 10% on a yearly basis and reached over 601.8 million TEU in 2012. The growth was stopped in 2008 when the global financial and economic recession started to have a full effect on ports and the maritime industry. The ports in the North Adriatic did not follow the average increase of container transport in the last 20 years; they had an increase of 7% on a yearly basis and the decline in container transport in these ports in the years 2008 to 2009 was minimal. In this condition the fastest growth of container throughput was recorded at the Port of Koper, at an average of 14% per year, and reached 600.441 TEU in the year 2013. The growth of container transport in the Port of Koper as well as the beginning of construction on the new container terminal has made the reconstruction and extension of the current container terminal an absolute priority. The extension is in line with the estimated growth of traffic as well as with the exploitation of present and future terminal capacities. In this paper the authors present dynamic models that help them to forecast container throughput in the Port of Koper. The models are prepared on the basis of available data and include model of growth, model of share and model of growth-share. As the Port of Koper is limited with capacity it is important to know the situation and to prepare the resources.
