The Massachusetts Port Authority plans to acquire two additional rubber-tired gantry cranes by year’s end for a total of 16 in operation at Conley Terminal.

 

   The Port of Boston recently received two new rubber-tired gantry cranes to shuttle boxes around Conley Terminal.
    The two RTGs join a fleet of 12 already in service at the terminal. The Massachusetts Port Authority plans to receive two more RTGs this fall, which will bring its total RTG fleet to 16 by early 2020.
    Massport said the RTG purchases are part of an $850 million investment in the Port of Boston’s Conley Terminal. “Revitalizing the working Port of Boston means strategically purchasing equipment and modernizing the terminal to support that growth,” said Lisa Wieland, Massport’s port director, in a statement.
    The Port of Boston’s container volumes have increased during the past four years, with more than 298,000 TEUs handled in 2018.

We are seeing many more pricing requests for Southeast Asia and the Indian subcontinent. Few actually moved their supply chains outside of China because this will take time, especially for larger shippers. However, Taiwan and South Korea are in a unique situation: Some manufacturing had shifted to mainland China in the last decade due to lower costs, but that infrastructure is still in Taiwan and South Korea. Some manufacturing may temporarily shift back there until Southeast Asia infrastructure catches up. 

Seven container liner shipping companies deploy capacity on the India Subcontinent to North America (US/CA) trade, with Maersk Line deploying the most capacity each week towards the trade, according to BlueWater Reporting’s Carrier/Trade Route Deployment Report.
