Cranes Arrive at Everett

A special delivery has finally arrived earlier this month at the Port of Everett.

Two container cranes made their way on a barge towed over 11 days by Foss Maritime from the Port of Los Angeles to Everett, where it was tied up at Pier 3 before being moved to South Terminal for transfer.

Last week, the cranes were rolled from barge to wharf and stored for maintenance and upgrades, according to the port.

When the $57 million South Terminal Modernization project is finished, the cranes will be placed in operation there as the key equipment for handling the next version of over-dimensional cargo, including aerospace parts for the new 777X.
