Bromma | Crane Spreaders for Container Terminal Logistics


Bromma is the industry's most experienced spreader manufacturer, known worldwide for crane spreaders of exceptional reliability.

In all, more than 14,000 crane spreaders and rotators have been put into service since the 1960's.  More than 9,000 of these are in operation today around the globe. Bromma has delivered spreaders to more than 500 terminals in over 90 countries in 6 continents. Today, Bromma manufactures close to 2,000 spreaders of all types per year. In fact, anywhere you go, if you work where containers are transported, you're likely to see a Bromma spreader in action.

Bromma is the technical leader in our industry, having developed the first telescopic spreader, the first twin-twenty spreader, the first 45 foot spreader, and the first all-electric spreader line. Bromma's testing, manufacturing, and service systems are also first-rate. Our finite element modeling software allow us to study, model and analyze stresses within the spreader so we know how it is going to handle accumulated fatigue - how it is going to hold up under year-after-year of punishing service. Likewise, prior to delivery, every spreader undergoes extensive testing of functions such as twistlocks, flipper arms and telescopic movements.

With our extensive network of offices and partners around the world, no one supports spreaders like Bromma. Bromma's total quality management program has resulted in Bromma factory being awarded ISO9001, ISO14001, OHSAS 18001 and ISO3834 certification - the first spreader manufacturer to be so recognized. Cutting edge technology is only one reason why customers choose Bromma.

Just as important as our technical leadership is our philosophy of standing behind our products. Bromma is a company that customers can rely on.

Update: Container Weight Verification: Opportunities and Challenges

The process within the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) to implement the mandatory verification of a container weight before it is loaded on to a vessel is progressing as expected. In a May 2014 meeting, the Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) approved draft amendments to SOLAS (the International Convention for Safety of Life at Sea) chapter VI to require the mandatory verification of the gross mass of...

Method, Risk and Regulation: A Container Weighing Insight

This article will elaborate on one of the things that risks being unforeseen by the regulatory authorities when defining the accuracy requirements: the difference between “equipment accuracy” and accuracy of the actual container weight. It will also look at some of the characteristics of the two main equipment options available to weigh the container in the terminal to establish the VGM. What are the benefits...

Under SOLAS - the regulation that requires madatory verification of container weight - there are two methods shippers can follow: verification of container weight after loading and sealing, or weighing all packages and cotnainers. Weigh bridges are an option or twist-lock sensors,...

Finding the best solution for container weight verification

The general consensus has grown that universal container weight verification is a worthy standard, the key question has quickly begun to shift from whether we should we have a universal requirement to how we can best implement this commitment. Lars Meurling, vice-president and marketing director at Bromma, discusses the three general approaches that might be possible.

Cost-effective and operationally efficient environmentally advanced spreaders

Container terminals today face many challenges – among them managing higher power consumption costs and the requirement to achieve ‘greener’ operations. Terminal congestion, noise abatement concerns, ship emissions and container handling equipment emissions are all factors in the frequent environmental permit delays that have slowed many terminal expansion projects.

While it is true the container handling industry has a long way to go, it...

Standardised electronic interfaces for spreaders

Container-handling machines (e.g. ship-to-shore cranes, mobile harbour cranes, straddle carriers, rail mounted gantry cranes and rubber-tyred gantry cranes) are an important business in the increasing market of logistics and transportation. These machines and their spreaders have to exchange command and status information. In the past, the manufacturers bilaterally agreed upon the interface between the crane and spreader, so it was not possible to use a...
