Spotted: Giant Cranes in La La Land

Giant Cranes in La La Land

The Port of Los Angeles shared these images of new gantry cranes travelling down the LA main channel in the early morning hours of Tuesday, September 1.

Guided by the Los Angeles Port Pilots, heavy load carrier Zen Hua 19 trasported two new gantry cranes destined for West Basin Container Terminal.

The cranes cleared the Vincent Thomas Bridge by approximately six feet.


West Basin Container Terminal, a joint venture established by China Shipping, Yang Ming, and Ports America in 2002, is the terminal operator of Berths 100-102 and Berths 121-126 in the Port of Los Angeles.

WBCT currently has 272 acres of terminal space, with berth space spanning 4,500 feet. With three vessel calls each week the terminal handles over 800,000 container moves per year.

WBCT’s equipment inventory currently includes 13 post-Panamax ship to shore cranes, 19 transtainers, 39 tophandlers, and more than 170 yard hustlers.
