In the harbour, reliable and efficient loading and unloading of ships is decisive for successful bulk goods terminals. When handling raw materials such as coal, building materials such as gravel or foodstuffs such as grain, different material densities are encountered that present a series of challenges to man and machine.

With a maximum material handling rate of up to 2,300 tonnes per hour, mobile harbour cranes from Liebherr are suitable for sea ports and inland ports and can be used not only as mobile cranes but also as fixed cranes.
