GT USA Wilmington, partnering with KoneCranes, has taken delivery of five new Rubber Tired Gantry (RTG) cranes at the Port of Wilmington in Delaware, which will significantly strengthen the terminal’s operational efficiency and increase overall productivity.


The cranes will be delivered on site fully assembled by KoneCranes, ready to be commissioned to enter operations once the yard densification project is complete. This project, scheduled to be completed in late Fall 2020, will effectively double the current yard capacity.
