It was announced today that four ZPMC Super-Post Panamax Cranes arrived at the Seattle Harbor and ended their weeks-long journey at Terminal 5. These cranes are among the largest on the West Coast, at 316 feet tall with the ability to lift 100 tons of cargo and they will be able to handle the largest container vessels currently operating around the world. There is limited capacity at surrounding ports such as British Columbia and Los Angeles, so this will push additional capacity to the Seattle and Tacoma ports.
