Rotterdam World Gateway (RWG) has taken delivery of two deep sea quay cranes which are scheduled for operational service in the second half of 2020.
The new cranes were built by ZPMC in China, each crane has a lifting height of 56 meters and is capable of handling container vessels up to 26 rows wide.
Together with the two quay cranes RWG has invested in 25 new Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs).

RWG plays a key role in efficient, sustainable, reliable and safe container handling. Together with our customers, stakeholders and partners, such as DP world, we will continue to develop our services.”
RWG is an international consortium consisting of four globally operating container shipping companies – APL, MOL, HMM and CMA CGM – and terminal operator DP World.
