Baltic sea ports' cargo volumes reached all time high in 2011
​– Cargo volume growth in the Baltic Sea ports has during the last six years concentrated mostly to the big ports located in the eastern region of the Baltic Sea, says researcher Elisa Holma from the Centre for Maritime Studies, University of Turku.
