A container gantry crane, also known as a container handling gantry crane or a ship-to-shore crane, is a type of crane that is used in ports and container terminals for loading and unloading shipping containers from vessels.

In this article, we will explore the different types of container gantry cranes, their applications, features, and specifications.

They are commonly used in ports, container yards, and intermodal facilities. Container gantry cranes are particularly useful for handling large volumes of cargo quickly and efficiently. They are also used to stack and retrieve containers from stack yards, to load and unload containers from trucks and trains, and to move containers between vessels and shore.
