U.S. ports are confident about Chinese-made cranes

U.S. President Biden recently signed an executive order proposing to invest more than US$20 billion in port security construction over the next five years, including the local production of new port cranes to replace Chinese-made cranes in ports across the United States.

U.S. officials claim that these cranes can be controlled, repaired and programmed remotely, making them vulnerable to data leaks. However, the officials did not provide any evidence of relevant safety concerns. In fact, U.S. ports are confident in the safety of these devices.

The Virginia Port Authority said it has no intention of replacing the Chinese-made cranes and has not had any discussions with the federal government on the matter. Port of Virginia spokesperson Cathy Vick revealed that all 27 cranes at the port are made in China. Not only that, the port recently ordered eight more cranes from China, four of which will be delivered later this year and the other four in August next year.

Vick told the Virginia Business Journal that there had been no reports of cybersecurity breaches involving the cranes or tips from the federal government that the cranes were being used for espionage.

The North Carolina Port Authority said that the cranes at the Port of Wilmington in the state were made in China. They recently conducted a safety assessment of the port and found no safety issues.

Netherlands-based Maersk Container Terminals (APM Terminals) recently commissioned two state-of-the-art Chinese-made cranes at the Port of New York-New Jersey to improve efficiency and promote sustainable development.

Cranes made in China are difficult to replace

The ports' decision is consistent with the position of the American Association of Port Authorities. The association said in recent days that the so-called safety concerns were nothing more than sensational claims and that there was no evidence that cranes were used to disrupt or track port operations.

The U.S. government has no relevant evidence and it is difficult to prove that its concerns are reasonable. At the same time, the United States also lacks viable alternatives, and ports cannot give up using Chinese-made cranes in the short term.

All in all, although the United States is determined to cultivate local manufacturing, it will still take time for American-made cranes to compete with similar Chinese products.
