    During November this year there increased stevedoring volumes of liquid cargo (+60,7 percent) and bulk and dry bulk cargo(+5,0 percent), and the volumes of general cargo decreased by 10,7 percent, comparing to November 2007.
    Such significant growth of liquid cargo volumes was predetermined by increased oil products handling +85,5 percent (during November 2008 828,04 thousand tons was handled, during November 2007- 446,37 thousand tons, difference  +381,67 thousand tons). Stevedoring volumes of liquid fertilizers decrease (during November this year 49,06 thousand tons was handled, during November 2007 – 88,23 thousand tons, difference -39,17 thousand tons).
    Comparing bulk cargo stevedoring volumes of November 2008 and 2007, there mostly grew the volumes of agricultural products (+76,36 thousand tons, handled 244,80 thousand t), minerals and building materials (+40,21 thousand t, handled123,29 thousand t) and peat (+9,20 thousand t, handled 17,45 thousand t) in Klaipėda port. During November there decreased stevedoring volumes of scrap metal (-28,21 thousand t, handled 23,29 thousand t), bulk fertilizers (-28,17 thousand t, handled 315,24 thousand t) and raw sugar (-20,60 thousand t, handled 3,50 thousand t), comparing to the same period 2007.
    Speaking about general cargo there increased container handling (from the point of view of tonnage) (+20,53 thousand t, handled 267,18 thousand t) and iron and steel products (+1,05 thousand t, handled 30,67 thousand t). There decreased Ro-Ro cargo (from the point of view of tonnage) (-43,74 thousand t, handled 291,69 thousand t), timber  (-37,50 thousand t, handled 38,85 thousand t) and packed fertilizers (-12,14 thousand t, handled 18,86 thousand t).
    During November this year the turnover of containers in TEU was by 20,0 percent bigger than during November last year (during November 2008 - 32.235 TEU, difference  +5.373 TEU). Ro-Ro units handling decreased by 15,6 percent (during November 2008 - 14.816 units, difference  -2731 units).
    During November 2008 13,33 thousand passengers were serve din Klaipėda port, i.e. by 5,0 percent less than during the same period last year.
    Nonetheless that during the second half of 2008 the decrease of consumption is reflected in cargo handling results, we expect that this year Klaipėda port will finish by reaching the biggest turnover of 30 million tons during the whole history of the port.
