Unfortunately cranes are often left in the area of berthing. Most terminals have however in their regulations that during berthing the area has to be freed of cranes. However, it is very often not done for time and cost
 reasons and when something goes wrong a ship hit a crane then the ship is held responsible.
Only way to bypass that problem would be when a Kapt refuses to berth his vessel, but he will do that 2-3 times and then he is again Chief Mate.

Very wise words from an experienced man.

Felixstowe always have the cranes boomed up and out of the way of any berthing vessels .
