One of the most significant advantages of the Baltic States is that all of the ports in these countries belong to the government. In Finland, the ports are privately owned. The situation can be that in Latvia there ain’t any ports where you have to pay for the vessel and in Finland you need to pay in every port. This is a very non-winning situation in the competition. Also out of influencing possibilities is the salery of dockworkers. In Latvia, port employee receives 10 euros per hour, in Finland - 20 euros per hour. Already the costs of running operations is too high. Finding a resolution to this issue is out of competence and capacity of the Finnish experts in transit business. This issue can be solved only at the governmental level.
