A rubber-tired gantry crane (RTG crane) (also transtainer) is a mobile gantry crane used in intermodal operations to ground or stack containers. Inbound containers are stored for future pickup by drayage trucks, and outbound are stored for future loading on to vessels. RTGs typically straddle multiple lanes, with one lane reserved for container transfers.

The Konecranes Rubber-Tired Gantry (RTG) crane is a great example of how intelligent design can make container handling safer, more productive and more reliable. The combination of intelligent streel structure, Active Load Control (ALC) technology and smarter cabin makes this crane the most productive and reliable in the world.
