thyssenkrupp ocean-going ship loaders come in many different versions: long traveling with slewing and luffing jibs, radial traveling with fixed pivot point, as well as in various other customized designs.

Ship loaders for inland waterway ships differ from those meant for sea-going ships only due to their smaller dimensions and lower throughput rates.

Ship loaders with slewing and luffing booms are especially suited for terminals with short quays. The ability to slew, raise,lower and also telescope the boom and its feed belt means that the system can be matched to any size of ship and method of loading. The installation of such loaders on a finger pier, where ships can quickly unload on both sides of the quay ensures even greater efficiency and economy of operations.
