Container Straddler, Port of Gothenburg, Sweden
A straddler is an important piece of equipment in containerized port
operations. They are mainly used to pick up or drop off containers dockside
to and from nearby container stacking areas and are thus the last (of
first) link in a container terminal. The reason of their height is the
capability to load, unload and carry containers over stacks, commonly
up to three containers in height.
