New ZPMC Cranes Will Augment Port of Oakland’s Big Ship Capability

Three new ship to shore container cranes, built by Shanghai-based ZPMC, will arrive at the Port of Oakland later this year and will enhance the ability of SSA’s Oakland International Container Terminal to handle 19,000 TEU ships and larger.

ZPMC discussed the new cranes and new harbor automation technology at a Propeller Club of Northern California virtual presentation on June 16th.

At the presentation, Port of Oakland executive director Danny Wan welcomed ZPMC: “We are especially excited to welcome ZPMC who will be delivering new cranes to the Port of Oakland later this year. These cranes will be delivered to our partner SSA (Stevedoring Service of America). These will be the tallest cranes in North America and will help the Port of Oakland handle the largest container ships… Back in 1996, the Port of Oakland was the recipient of the first ship to shore cranes delivered in North America. So, thank you ZPMC!”
