More than 100 container cranes

This year, Rotterdam will become the first port outside Asia with more than 100 specialised container quayside cranes in operation. Last year, the number was 92, this year it will be 103. This is according to the latest edition of "Rotterdam Port Statistics".
A unique feature of the port of Rotterdam is the large number of specialised cranes for inland and coastal shipping: 30. It requires less investment and it is possible to load and unload more quickly if smaller canes are used to handle smaller ships.
This year, new cranes have arrived or will be arriving: Euromax Terminal, ECT Delta Terminal Delta Barge Feeder Terminal, Interforest Terminal Rotterdam and Rotterdam Shortsea Terminal.
