Every year a ship comes to McMurdo to deliver supplies and take away retro (trash, old & broken equipment, etc).  Here are some images of the process. The Ocean Giant is 545 ft long, 80 feet wide and was build in 2012.

The "Ocean Giant" at dusk ready for unloading.

 Trucks waiting for containers from the ship.

Ready to go...

Two trucks heading up the hill to the cargo yard.
The containers on the pad are waiting to be loaded onto the ship.
