The containers use trend and cranes integration for moving them, have a huge impact in the physic design of existing ports in the world. In this document a comparison research between rectilinear movement (inverted U) and parabolic movement (overlapping) is presented by using a rubber tyred gantry (RTG) crane simulator. For the tests analysis, the chi-quarter method was employed, showing up that operators presents less difficult handling parabolic movement than rectilinear one.
