Video: Loading containers in action

10.23.10 | Comment?

This is a video I’ve been meaning to post, but never had enough internet bandwidth to do so (until today, yay!). The view we had inside our Cap Cleveland cabin gave us an up-close and personal sight of how the containers were being loaded. Fascinating!

This was in Savannah, and they were loading containers with over-sized tires (most likely for some kind of ginormous tractor) in the compartments below the main deck level. According to this video, it only takes about a minute to pick up, position and drop off a container on the ship. No wonder we didn’t have a lot of port time!
