APL Belgium, Tied up Backwards, at night 2 Replies From Friday Night, APL Belgium tied up in the opposite direction as normal. This makes for better photos, particularly at night. Share this… Facebook Pinterest Twitter Linkedin Reddit
Is there a reason that they usually tie up in a particular direction ?
They tend to point outbound for an easier departure i think. it makes no difference for cargo operations.
vessels using their own cranes tie up so the cranes are on the outboard side, away from the pier. that makes moving cargo easier.
