    Having analysed the turnover of three quarters of this year, optimistic tendencies are getting evident. 34.6 million tonnes were loaded in the Port of Klaipeda in 9 months of this year. According to the port’s press release, this number is smaller by one percent or by approx. 380 thousand tonnes than in the same period last year. If compared to other seaports on the eastern Baltic coast, Klaipeda shows better results than the mean of all other ports. The stevedoring on the eastern Baltic coast was reduced by almost 9 percent in this January-September.
