There has been a steady increase in trade through Sydney since the expansion of Port Botany.
Asciano‘s Patrick division has invested in three new Liebherr cranes, arriving this month, which will be erected and commissioned by October this year.

The cranes will help deal with the steady increase in trade through Sydney since the expansion of Port Botany, which now includes a new automated terminal with the largest container terminal capacity in Australia.

Other highlights of the new terminal include four quay-line berths (1,400 m of quay line); 1.6 million TEU capacity; expanding to eight quay cranes; and 44 automated straddles.

The automated terminal will deliver improved safety rates, a cleaner environment and superior customer service.
