They strengthen the excellent collection of facilities that enable the Port to successfully handle and distribute every range of cargo using the world's busiest shipping lane.

The larger of the two is an LHM 550 Mobile Harbour crane, capable of lifting 104 tonnes and with a maximum outreach of 54 metres.

The second unit, an LHM 280 Mobile Harbour crane can lift 84 tonnes with an outreach of 40 metres, meaning they can handle steel, breakbulk, containers, palletised fruit and more. The hydrostatic drive concept in connection with the closed hydraulic circuits guarantees immediate release reaction times for rapid and safe working.

Karen Hayes, Commercial and Divisional Manager at Port of Dover Cargo said: “Our strategic location with fast, dedicated and direct access to the wider UK and Europe will forever make our operation unrivalled."

Port of Dover Cargo has HACCP certification, the 360 Quality Code and organic accreditation from the Organic Food Federation and full AEO status (Authorised Economic Operator) in customs and security.
