APM Terminals Elizabeth has commissioned two of six new ZPMC super-post Panamax ship-to-shore (STS) cranes that are part of a USD70 million modernisation project.

The cranes have a 23-container outreach designed to accommodate both ultra-large container vessels (ULCVs) and Neo-Panamax Vessels.

“The new cranes will improve our productivity by enabling us to work multiple large ships simultaneously,” says Henrik Kristensen, APM Terminals Elizabeth managing director. 

“This reduces port stay time and improves the speed of our customer supply chains. “The increased capacity we are bringing to the Port of New York and New Jersey aligns with the industry trend of deploying larger container vessels that are more efficient and represent a more sustainable approach to ocean shipping.”

By the first quarter of 2025, APM Terminals Elizabeth will have a total of 10 identical super-post-Panamax cranes.

The terminal already has four similar super-post Panamax cranes, bringing the total to 14 cranes operating along its 6,000 ft. (1,829 m) quay.

The new crane additions follow a USD200 million terminal improvement project, which included berth-area reinforcements, a modernised gate facility and trucker appointment system and crane procurements that increased the terminal’s vessel lift capacity from 900,000 to over 1.5 million lifts annually.
