Freeport, TX -- Port Freeport is pleased to announce the sailing of our two Post Panamax Cranes. “The Gantry cranes departed from Shanghai, China on May 7th and are expected to arrive at Port Freeport by the end of July,” Executive Port Director/CEO Glenn Carlson said.
Being approximately 80 feet wide each, both cranes will occupy a portion of Berth 7 at Velasco Terminal. They will stand just less than 300 feet from the ground and can lift up to 75 tons. “These cranes will allow the Port to continue to support our current container carrier customers through increased marine productivity and to attract new services opening new markets from Port Freeport for the petrochemical industry in the Brazoria County region,” said Carlson.
“We are excited and anxiously await their arrival to Port Freeport,” he said.
Port Freeport is committed to keeping the local community informed of our operations and results. If you any have questions or comments about this article, please email or call Glenn Carlson, Executive Port Director/CEO at firstname.lastname@example.org or 979-233-2667 (ext. 4264).
