What does a container hub stand for?

A hub is a container terminal that receives containers delivered from distant regions of the world by ocean-going containerships and afterwards loads these containers onto small-size containerships for distribution among peripherical ports (or vice-versa). The world of seaborne transportation calls this function “transshipment”. Since the moment a hub is launched at Klaipeda port, containers from other continents would be moved to Klaipeda directly, by-passing traditional hubs at the Western Europe. Subsequently, these containers would be moved by containerships to neighboring ports at the Baltic Sea.
