Crane and Spreader (2007)

A “spreader” on a container crane prepares to lock onto a shipping container before lifting it off a ship. Appropriately for a part of the container shipping infrastructure that makes the Global Economy possible, this hardware is fully international. The logos readable in the full-resolution version of this picture show that the crane is Chinese, built and Shanghai by Zhenhua Port Machinery Company (ZPMC); and the spreader is the product of Bromma Conquip, a Swedish company with factories in Malaysia and Finland.
