The multi-purpose quay crane offers ports that are characterized by relatively low throughputs and/or a wide range of commodities, a versatile and flexible alternative to more specialized types of handling equipment. In keeping with the growth in specialized trades, their development has been marked by a general increase in sophistication, with some designs appearing that are intended to serve specific trades while retaining this multi-purpose aspect. However, there is some argument as to whether these designs are justified in the light of their basic function and the demands of the market.
