A smooth transit for GPA’s Neo-Panamax cranes

Senior Director of Operations Dan Rohde has accompanied the past four batches of ship-to-shore cranes along the river route to Garden City Terminal

The crowds in downtown Savannah had the chance to see Georgia Ports Authority’s four additional Neo-Panamax cranes transit the Savannah River, while draped in a 50- by 100-foot American flag. Flying the Stars and Stripes as the cranes make the journey to the Port of Savannah has progressed over the last few years, Senior Director of Operations Dan Rohde said.
