The indented berth layout opens the way to relieve the quayside congestion that has been building up in recent years, providing twice the area available for landing and loading containers to the ship. The innovative new portal crane makes this possible and, with 4 hooks per crane, places up to double the number of lifting spreaders over the ship, with the average trolley travel distance over the vessels halved. This will result in substantial reduction in ship time in port, as well as improved land utilisation, often in environmentally sensitive areas
