Cranes lift and lower loads with a hoist that is attached to a trolley. The trolley moves back and forth along a bridge. The bridge moves along a runway. Some cranes – such as a jib crane – don’t have a bridge but still have a hoist attached to a trolley and can move a load in a horizontal direction.
