Upon arrival, the ship will be anchored in Commencement Bay for up to 48 hours before sailing on to the Husky Terminal located in the northwest section of the Blair Waterway to deliver the cranes.

The super-post-Panamax cranes were ordered and purchased by The Northwest Seaport Alliance from Chinese based Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industries Co. Ltd (ZPMC) after a successful bidding process. The eight cranes were ordered from overseas are they are currently no types of these cranes manufactured in the U.S. ZPMC delivers more 200 cranes of this type each year around the world and is the largest heavy-duty equipment manufacturer in the world. Many U.S. seaports have received cranes from ZPMC. The remaining four cranes on order are scheduled to be delivered in 2019.

The Husky Terminal that is currently being upgraded at a cost of $250 million will be the recipient of the new cranes. Upgrading began in September 2016 to strengthen and realign the berth to allow the installation of the eight Panamax container cranes which when fully installed are capable of servicing two 18,000-TEU container ships concurrently. The new cranes have a lift height of 165 feet above the pier deck and an outreach of 24 containers.
