Modern cargo flow nowadays requires proper analysis in order to optimize the costs and environment
impact. To properly assess the ports at eastern Adriatic region transport energy efficiency and emissions
were analysed, including both sea and land transport. For the sea transport Otrant gate was chosen as
an entry point in Adriatic Sea. The analysed ports are Trieste, Koper and Rijeka as well-established
container terminals and ports of Zadar and Ploče as terminals which in future may provide significant
service. For the land transport, using both truck and train, Budapest was chosen as a final destination
due to its location further in land at similar distance from all selected ports. As a cargo unit one 10
tonne TEU unit was used. The purpose of this analysis was to determine required energy to transport
that one unit and emissions which such transport produce, not a volume or speed of transport. All
the calculations were made using EcoTransIT calculator. The results showed that north Adriatic ports
have one of the best positions in terms of efficiency of land transport, however southern Croatian ports
have to develop transport infrastructure, mainly railroad, to be considered as a notable stakeholder.
