Last night's surfing had me looking at statistics on shipping. The truck driver video (posted below had tweaked my curiosity). Using some different google-fu searchs and limited time I came up with some interesting data.
Here are a couple screen shots and links for you to peruse if you're interested.
From "The Port Of Los Angeles Facts and Figures" <<
I get 9.3 million divided by 82 cranes = 113,000 containers.
24/7/365 is 8760 hours. Each crane unloads 13 containers per hour every hour a year.
Here is a link to PORT PERFORMANCE <<<
Check out some of these numbers:
I had to look up TEU
The twenty-foot equivalent unit (often TEU or teu) is an inexact unit of cargo capacity often used to describe the capacity of container ships and container terminals. It is based on the volume of a 20-foot-long (6.1 m) intermodal container, a standard-sized metal box which can be easily transferred between different modes of transportation, such as ships, trains and trucks.
