An ice-free seaport in Klaipeda is a bridge joining the CIS, Asian, EU and other markets. In comparison to the other seaports of the Baltic States, Klaipėda is closest to the WEST, i.e. to the ports of Northern Europe and South Scandinavia.
Thanks to its unique geographical location and history, Lithuania has over the years developed a sound awareness of both Eastern and Western mentalities, and firm traditions of cooperation. Lithuanian entrepreneurs are familiar with Eastern countries, and they have retained strong links with entrepreneurs from this region. The Lithuanian nation is valued in Eastern markets as a member of the European Union that has the know-how of European business culture. The well-developed logistics business in Lithuania confirms the country‘s role of a middleman between the East and the West.
Two routes of the international Trans-European transport corridors cross the territory of Lithuania: 80% of European freight transport is carried on those corridors. Lithuanian truck fleet counts more than 30,000 vehicles. Logistics account for 9.98% of GDP.
Lithuania has seven Special Economic Zones, totaling 1 519 ha, with physical and/or legal infrastructure, support service, and tax incentives in the major Lithuanian industrial centers. State and Private Industrial parks are prepared for business use and have all physical infrastructures (electricity, gas, sewerage, roads, etc.). There are more than 834,000 m2 of logistics and warehousing facilities.
