     Lithuania is gaining ground as a trade intermediary between West and East year by year. Today transport is one of the sectors of the Lithuanian economy that is integrated the most into the European market. The international importance of the Lithuanian transport system has been proved by sustainable increase of the traffic flow. Lithuania is a transit country with a well-developed transport network.
     Lithuania is crossed by 6 European highways.
     The rail spur of the international transport corridor No. 9 (MTK # 9) "Kiev – Minsk – Vilnius – Kaliningrad/Vilnius – Klaipeda" runs in the west-east direction from Klaipeda seaport to Belarusian border. This is a unique and expeditious gate between European Union and CIS. Cargoes cross the eastern EU border here and continue their journey to Belarus, Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and other countries of Eastern Europe and Asia. Cargoes are carried from Klaipeda to the south by the intermodal train "Viking" that is a joint project of Lithuanian, Ukrainian and Belarusian railways, stevedoring companies and the seaports of Klaipeda, Odessa and Ilyichevsk (Ukraine). "Viking" transports 20- and 40-feet containers, semitrailers and road trains (contrailers) shipped from Scandinavian and West-European countries to Klaipeda seaport.
        Klaipeda seaport has the most widespread shipping line network in the Baltics. Nowadays the port is connected with the other ports of the world by 30 constant shipping lines. Nine of them are ferry and Ro-Ro lines, which transport vehicles, containers and railway wagons between Klaipeda and German, Swedish and Danish seaports. This ensures good prospects for the increase in cargo flow between Russia, Belarus, CIS and West European countries via Klaipeda seaport, especially through the development of combined transports using railway services.
