Horizontal and vertical port handling techniques

Horizontal and vertical handling are activities that can be carried out in ports. These activities are important for the transport of goods and products, as well as for their storage and handling.

  • Horizontal port handling involves moving goods between ships and docks, or between docks and warehouses. This can be done using cranes, forklifts, trailers and other equipment.
  • Vertical port handling involves moving goods between ships and docks using gantry cranes, winches and various equipment. These activities are essential for the proper functioning of ports and for the efficient transport of goods.

ūüďć They require the use of specific techniques and equipment, as well as qualified and competent operators. That is why SMMC offers efficient and cost-effective handling solutions through a highly qualified and experienced team.
