Description of the E-Crane
In keeping with the philosophy of doing things better, Wayne B. Smith, Inc. was looking for ways to provide better service to their customers and gain an advantage over their competitors.
The addition of the E-Crane® to our off-loading facility has greatly improved our versatility. Not only are we more productive and efficient in completing jobs we have done for years, we have started to find new applications that allow us to offer more material handling services to our customers. With the pinpoint accuracy of the E-Crane®, we have decreased the possibility of fugitive emissions while at the same time increasing worker safety.
Mr. Jerry Smith, General Manger for WBS said the new E-Crane® would be used dockside to unload bulk commodities.
“It has the potential to increase capacity, but the main reason we went with the E-Crane® was the ease of operation, efficiency and operator friendliness.”
The E-Crane® was commissioned in May of 2000. The Smith E-Crane® is the fifth “original E-Crane” installed for waterway cargo use. Five more installations are planned for this year.
