Four Konecranes Ship to Shore cranes (STSs) are on their way to the Port of Savannah, Georgia, operated by the Georgia Ports Authority (GPA). The Super Post Panamax cranes are part of an order that Konecranes received in 2011. In addition to the four STS cranes, the order included 20 Konecranes Rubber Tired Gantry (RTG) cranes that have already been delivered to the customer.
