Boat Port Cargo Handling

Boat Port Cargo

Ports can be dangerous environments to work in – encountering hazards such as overhead loads, heavy machinery, enclosed spaces, open water, dangerous goods and more. Vessels arrive and depart all the time, meaning equipment and machines are constantly operating.

There is a vast range of cargo handling equipment used to secure containers to ships and on top of other shipping containers – including off-road, self-propelled vehicles such as:

  • Forklifts
  • Gantry cranes
  • Mobile cranes
  • Loaders
  • Side handlers
  • Top handlers

Though these are typically used for boat port cargo handling, various other types of equipment can be employed. Take tractors, trailers, and semi-trailers, for instance. These can move cargo within the port, ensuring maximum safety and efficiency.
