When a Gantry Crane Is Your Best Option

A gantry crane is an overhead crane that’s a lot like a bridge crane, except that the bridge of a gantry crane is supported by the gantry crane’s own steel legs. The gantry crane is typically seen as a solution for when overhead runways are not practical or possible. Gantry cranes are also capable of supporting significantly more weight than a similar overhead crane.
