Paceco Inc. claims credit for developing the world's first shoreside container crane in 1958. These cranes, now known as Portainers, are in use all over the world today. Paceco also developed rubber-tired and rail-mounted Transtrainers for container handling in yards. A more recent Paceco development is the Multi-Purpose crane, designed to handle containers, bulk general cargo. Company officials say it is ideal for use by both small and large ports where versatility in unloading is needed. Paceco recently delivered two 40-long-ton modified "A" MACH (Modified Automated Container Handling) Portainers to the Port of Long Beach. The units have a 115-foot outreach, 50-foot backreach and are equipped with telescopic spreaders.
