Yesterday, the Port of Tacoma saw the arrival of two new cranes headed for the Washington United Terminal on the Blair Waterway. The two Super-Post Panamax cranes are 273 ft. high have the capacity to serve a ship 24 containers wide, ranking them amongst the largest in the world.

The cranes were built by the Shanghai Zhenhua Part Machinery Company (ZPMC) and arrived fully constructed and welded to the deck of the Zhen Hua 26.
