Port of NY & NJ terminal gets newest generation gantry cranes

The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey announced that four of the industry's newest generation gantry cranes designed for today's largest container ships arrived at APM Terminals Elizabeth on April 26, 2018.

The arrival marks a major milestone in a $200 million facility infrastructure investment by APM Terminals that will be completed this year.

The new Ultra Super Post-Panamax Cranes reach 23 containers across the vessel beam - equivalent to two thirds the width of a football field - and increases productivity for terminal customers who enter the Port with larger ships containing increased cargo volumes.

The arrival of the cranes coincided with the completion of the deepening of the Port channels to 50 feet.
