Literature survey, Report 90.3.TT.2790, Transport Technology.

In this report a review has been made of the possible use of telescopic truck cranes and mobile harbour cranes for cargo handling from barges. Also a study has been made into hoisting equipment, specificaly spreaders, best suited for these types of cranes. The main problems are the limited mobility, the positioning of the cargo and the lack of horizontal load path. Furthermore modifications to truck cranes and reach stackers are discussed so that they can be applied to cargo handling from barges.
