Cranes Ensure Smooth Cargo Handling

Night CranesPort Everglades has an array of gantry cranes and spreaders that can quickly off-loaded and on-loaded cargo, including:

A full-range of mobile handling equipment is available through franchised stevedores, including:

  • container top loaders
  • yard mules
  • chassis
  • flatbed trailers
  • high-capacity forklifts

Around-the-clock, on-site equipment maintenance and an extensive inventory of crane replacement parts significantly reduce downtime.

Stevedoring/cargo handling and crane equipment businesses can be found in the Port Facilities Guide & Directory or by calling the Port Business Development Division at 954-523-3404.
