Looks like an RTG (Rubber tired Ganty) loading a 2 TEU (aka 40ft) container onto an old Landing Craft

charles . . . kindasorta. thanks for the RTG term; i’ve always called them “travel lifts,” although that’s a manufacturer name. the “can” is a one TEU, and the landing craft dates from 1977. more later. thanks for writing.

The ones that are on rails are called RMGs – rail mounted gantries

Just realized it is a boat lift, not a proper RMG or RTG, which is the units actually used to move containers at the piers, once the crane lifts out of the ship

-It’s by the airport there’s a silhouette of a dog, and an empty 40 yard dumpster: to be filled with flotsam and jetsam!
