In November 2017, the Port of Liepaja reached the largest amount of cargo handled in one month - 810 481.52 tons, strengthening the position of the Port of Liepaja as the main grain harbor in the Baltic Sea region. “It was possible due to two reasons – because at the beginning of the year, together with entrepreneurs of the Port of Liepaja and with Latvian Railway, we made significant changes in the planning and organizing process of wagon manoeuvres, which significantly increased capacity and also because of 3 new warehouses and modernisation process of already existing warehouses, capacity of dry bulk storage increased by 10% and opportunities for storage of new cargo types arised,” emhasized by Uldis Hmielevskis, Deputy CEO of the LSEZ. Cereals have been the largest cargo group in the Port of Liepaja for a long time. In order to continue cargo attraction, in 2017, 3 new warehouses were built in the Port of Liepaja and the total grain storage capacity increased by 10%. The growth of cargo turnover required a very thorough and efficient work organization from the side of entrepreneurs, Liepaja SEZ Authority and SJSC "Latvijas dzelzceļš". By improving the possibilities of maneuvering railway wagons, the capacity of railway wagons was increased from 180 wagons per day to 275 wagons.
