    In October 2008 the turnover of liquid (+7,2 %) and general cargoes (+2,0 %) increased, while the handling of dry and bulk cargoes decreased by 30,4 % in comparison to October 2007.
    Growth in turnover of liquid cargoes was largely influenced by 18,2 % increase in handling of oil products at the port of Klaipėda (499,24 thousand tons handled in October 2008, while in October 2007 – 422,55 thousand tons, change +76,69 thousand tons). The turnover of liquid fertilizers continues decreasing (in October of this year 74,90 thousand tons handled, in October 2007 – 114,33 thousand tons, change – 39,43 thousand tons).
    Comparing the nomenclature of bulk cargoes handled in October, 2008 and 2007, growth in raw sugar (+39,00 thousand tons, 39,00 thousand tons handled) and agricultural products (+7,29 thousand tons, 210,60 thousand tons handled) was recorded at Klaipėda port; while handling figures for bulk fertilizers (– 299,04 thousand tons, 280,72 thousand tons handled), primary and processed minerals (–39,70 thousand tons, 74,07 thousand tons handled) and ferroalloys (– 21,57 thousand tons, 22,64 thousand tons handled) in October, 2008 decreased in comparison to the corresponding period of 2007.
    In terms of general cargo nomenclature, the growth was also recorded in handling of iron- and steel-ware (+38,81 thousand tons, 65,22 thousand tons handled), containers (in terms of tonnage) (+32,61 thousand tons, 319,10 thousand tons handled) and packed fertilizers (+20,39 thousand tons, 44,56 thousand tons handled).
