Spotted: Savannah Welcomes Four Giant Cranes


The Georgia Ports Authority welcomed the arrival of four massive ship-to-shore cranes at the Port of Savannah’s Garden City Terminal on November 22, 2017.

The four cranes passed River Street in Savannah on their way to Garden City Terminal, sailing under the Talmadge Bridge.

The new cranes, which bring the Port of Savannah’s fleet to 30, are expected to help the port better accommodate a larger class of container vessels which started calling at the US East Coast ports following the opening of the Expanded Panama Canal.

Six additional cranes are scheduled to arrive in 2020. Once the remaining cranes are delivered, a total of 36 cranes will allow Garden City Terminal to move 1,300 containers per hour on and off vessels.

The Port of Savannah is comprised of two deepwater terminals, Garden City Terminal and Ocean Terminal. Garden City Terminal is the fourth busiest container handling facility in the United States, encompassing more than 1,200 acres and moving millions of tons of containerized cargo annually, according to Georgia Ports Authority.
