A bit more modern design maybe, Karin, but the functionality is clearly the same. :-)

I think this crane is very rarely used. I've never seen it working, and I'm here quite often.

If you have another look, you can see that much of the cargo are on wheels. When a ship comes in, they simply lower a big hatch at the aft, and then they can roll the containers on or off. (Ro-Ro)

They've also got a special lifting tractor that can store the containers on top of each other.

Thanks again for checking in and leave a nice comment, and please say so, if I'm boring you with my technical stuff! ;-))
