Ploce is a modern port city in the estuary of river Nerteva with a large container terminal. During communism it was called Kardeljevo (honoring the name of the communist party ideologue Edvard Kardelj). Since, Bosnia and Herzegovina access to the Adriatic sea in Neum cannot be used as a meaningful port, Croatian government agreed to offer Bosnia duty-free use of Ploce port as a part of the bilateral treaties signed between those two allies. However, this agreements seem to be rather slow in implementation.
