One of the main challenges currently faced by container ports is the improvement of facilities to accommodate the increase in the size of vessels and the pressures That this supposes on the spatial and temporal aspects of the manipulation of the load. For larger vessels, investments are required in larger cranes that can reach up to Container farther from the dock. Traditionally, container handling cranes were originally designed to operate ships with a width of 13 containers, and when shipping companies began placing orders for Post Panamax vessels

in 1988, cranes with a longer range of up to 18 containers - on the main routes. The latest generation of ships needs an even wider range (22 to 23 containers), and the ports receive strong pressure from shipping companies to invest in this port equipment, failing to be excluded from the main East-West trade routes.
