Spanish term or phrase: carritos portuarios
Requirements for the host port of a sailing boat regatta:

Espacio cerrado con un servicio de seguridad 24 horas dentro de una distancia conveniente a la Marina para 25 contenedores (variados con una longitud de 20-40 pies) con un número apropiado de carretillas o carritos portuarios

I was thinking "port/harbour trolleys" but couldn't find any relevant references on Google.

Thanks

Could it be "carretilla elevadora"??
The only references I can find to carritos/carretillas in a port is in this context?
Hope it helps!
