On huge cranes for Port Miami expansion

 
 
Four new gantry cranes floating to PortMiami on a slow freighter ship from China arrived Monday, via Government Cut. These post-Panamax cranes are needed to unload the big ships that will begin to call in Miami after the expansion of the Panama Canal is completed in 2015.

Re the Oct. 8 article, Colossal cranes deliver a big lift: Great front page picture of the new cranes being delivered to Port Miami, and great news regarding the future doubling of cargo traffic at the port.

The not so great news is that the cranes weren’t built in the United States, but, rather, in China.
