Port of Los Angeles looks to raise cranes


A major terminal at the Port of Los Angeles wants to raise the height of more than a dozen cranes so it can better accommodate larger vessels coming to the nation’s busiest seaport.

A meeting of the Los Angeles Board of Harbour Commissioners will decide whether to allow APM Terminals to extend its 14 cranes by around 9.7m and extend each boom by about 3m at Berths 401-404.

Port spokesman Phillip Sanfield said: “If approved, construction to heighten the dockside cranes could begin in autumn.”

The proposed crane-raising is part of a larger effort at the Port of Los Angeles to accommodate bigger ships.
