The Zagreb Pier Container Terminal is one of the basic components of the Rijeka Gateway Project, which first phase of construction will be realised by a loan granted by the World Bank, while the second phase of construction, including complete infrastructure and equipment, would be financed through private investment, modelled on a public and private partnership.

In the first phase of the construction of the Zagreb Pier Container Terminal, 400 metres will be built, while the second phase envisages an extension of the pier to the length of 680 metres. The terminal will be designed to accommodate the largest ships used in container transportation, while the sea depth of 20 m alongside the coast, will enable the berthing of the latest generation of container ships, currently still in the projection phase. The envisaged deadline for the realisation of this project is approximately from four to five years, out of which a year to a year and half is foreseen for designing and obtaining the building permit.
