A short but concise article focusing on Grup TCB's 'double boom' STS crane operation in contrast to the mobile harbour crane (MHC) to achieve higher terminal productivity. An MHC often takes up much more space on the jetty-pier than an STS crane, increasing the risk of congestion. Subsequently, Grup TCB proposed a new idea for the STS double boom concept that would enable four STS cranes to function at the same time to exceed 100 crane moves per hour (MPH), compared to the MHC's total of 80 MPH
