Stockton, CA – The Port of Stockton has greatly improved operational efficiency and expanded its cargo handling capabilities by investing in new equipment. The Port purchased two Liebherr 550 Mobile Harbor Cranes offering a combined lift capacity of 288 metric tonnes.
The addition of the two cranes make it possible for vessels to carry heavier cargo than their own cranes can safely handle. Access to the cranes enable the cargo handling activities to seamlessly unfold with less logistical red tape, saving time, and ultimately opening up markets to new carriers and cargoes calling the Port. In addition to providing flexibility, the two Liebherrs are part of an ongoing program to replace and enhance the Port’s fleet of cargo handling equipment as a key strategy to achieving the Port’s goal of becoming a carbon-neutral port.
