TOC Europe is part of a global portfolio of events that bring together stakeholders of the container supply chain to learn, debate and network
TOC has long been considered best in class by container terminal operators and their suppliers. The TOC of today has evolved into a complete container supply chainevent, delivering both technical content and also offering a platform to the stakeholders higher up in the cargo chain.
Therefore, there are now two distinct elements of the event:
The exhibition is a showcase for port & terminal technology and operations plus free technical seminars (including TECH TOC and BULK) aimed at terminal operators and their suppliers. Technology and service providers come together to showcase cutting edge solutions to their clients, the terminal operators and ports.
The high-level Container Supply Chain Conference which is co-located with each TOC event, is aimed at C-Suite strategic personnel including shippers, carriers and 3pl’s as well as the global operators and port authorities. In 2018 many of the conversations within the conference will focus on Digitalization & Disruption from the viewpoint of the key stakeholders within the container supply chain.
The common denominator in each of these forums is The Port. The port is firmly established as the critical link within the container supply chain. Any bottle necks ordelays that occur at the quayside or port hinterland, dramatically affect the time it takes for cargo to arrive at its destination. Ports therefore need to process cargo in a timely and cost effective manner using the latest technology on the market to do so. At TOC we place the port at the centre of the supply chain in line with our 40-year history and heritage.
