Port crane, generally is used in some port construction of aerial work, such as shipyards, factories, workshops and shore and ship, ship and shore operations. Small harbor crane, generally has its own self-reliance, occupies an area of less, high efficiency, stable operation and other characteristics. With the continuous economic take-off and development, water transportation has become a major and distinctive mode of transportation.

Especially in the construction of some ports, quay boat cranes generally play a very important role. General quay cranes are very efficient, with large lifting capacity and long enough boom extension, and large winch tonnage. Oil and electricity as well as occupy an area of less, stable work, high efficiency and these characteristics.

Generally we commonly small boat cranes, mainly for inland rivers, lakes or offshore vessels in general lifting loading and unloading goods to use.
