John Shirley Ltd work directly with a large number of reliable Slovenian hauliers, providing door to door service across Slovenia with delivery “on-wheels” for larger shipments, plus full loads. Trucks from 90 to 120 cbm are readily available and most can carry ADR goods.
Port of Koper
The Port of Koper is a major European port with major road and rail links to Austria, Germany, Hungary, and Eastern Europe. Through our partners there, we can offer a global service by container effecting collections to from and from e.g. Canada, Brazil, Australia, Singapore, the United States etc.
John Shirley ship part loads to Albania and Montenegro via the Port of Koper. Many of our hauliers are based in Ljubljana, Maribor and Novo Mesto and we use them to make collections and deliveries in nearby Italian towns such as Udine, Venice, Trieste, Vicenza, Belluno and Brescia for the U.K. and France.
The very central geograhical position of Slovenia makes it ideal for a whole variety of transit routes. For example, there are deliveries of Italian marble to Moscow and/or Russia in general, and countries beyond such as Kazakhstan. From the other direction, destinations include the Scandinavian countries.
We provide driver-accompanied full load services on most routes to and from Slovenia. Typical routes might be Maribor to Manchester, Ljubljana to Glasgow, and Ptuj to Paris. There are dedicated trucks exclusively for a shipper’s cargo, whether dry, hazardous or temperature controlled.
Depots in Slovenia
There are several groupage hubs through which John Shirley can organise on carriage cheaply and speedily to the rest of the Balkans with full traceability; countries such as Greece, Albania, Kosovo, Serbia and Montenegro.
The major hubs are in Jesenice, Kranj, and Celje.
Typical exports from Slovenia include wood-based products such as farmhouse furniture, knapkins, glass fibre, white goods, and caravans.
For Slovenian destinations we can arrange collection and delivery of line or shipper’s own containers whether 20’, 40’ or 45’ standard or high top.
