Ship-to-shore (sts) container cranes are also called as container cranes and rail mounted quay cranesor portainers. STS container cranes are basically a gantry type crane that are used to load and unload containers from ship to dock or viceversa. These cranes use spreaders (a device with locking mechanism, which is attched to the four corners of the containers.) for handling the containers. There are basically two types of STS container cranes, which are high profile and low profile. These profiles are the height at which the cranes handles the containers. For insatance, a low profile STS cranes are used at ports which are situated near to airports, this makes the path clear for the aircraft.
Furthermore, ship-to-shore container cranes are based on the lifting capacity, such as, panamax STS cranes, post panamax STS cranes and super-post panamax STS cranes. These segment deals with the size of the container ships, which the cranes can handle for loading and unloading of containers. Like in the case of panamax STS cranes, these type cranes are used for handling containers from the ships which are 12 to 13 containers row wide. Similarly, super-post panamax STS cranes are used for the vessels which are about 22 or more containers wide in breadth.
