The Port of Savannah received five electric rubber-tired gantry cranes on July 1. The order brings the current number of RTGs on terminal to 141.

  

 

"Garden City already has more RTGs than any other terminal in the country,” said GPA Executive Director Griff Lynch. “With the increases in our container business, and the massive deliveries from neopanamax vessels, maintaining capacity at least 20 percent over demand keeps the Port of Savannah free of congestion.”

 

 

The new eRTGs continue GPA’s transition from diesel- to cleaner, electric-powered container handling equipment.
