Please tell us a little about your company and what you will be showcasing at TOC Europe 2023

In the port operations business, we are offering an integrated product range of V.ply tires, radial and solid tires complemented by a digital solution package that is unique to the port segment. At the TOC Europe 2023, we will be showcasing the digital connection of tires, as well as how this can bring out the maximum efficiency and longevity of the tires – today and for the flow of tomorrow. A Smart Port means: Better flow

Who are you hoping to meet?

We are looking forward to an in-depth exchange with our customers, the media, professionals, as well as the port business and TOC community. We understand ourselves, as a partner and solution provider for port operators, that they are able to deal with the current developments in the industry in an effective manner.

Why is the European market so important to you?

Europe is one of the regions in the world when it comes to container traffic, has multiple large to medium-sized terminals and is intermodal. European customers require solutions regarding total cost of ownership, sustainability and digital solutions. All of this fits in perfectly with our overall business approach, bringing the best flow to our customers with regard to efficiency, total cost of ownership, and safety.

What are your plans, goals and ambitions for the rest of 2023 and beyond?

Since the recent realignment of the Specialty Tires business area, Federico Jiménez has taken over the global management of the Business Field tires for port operations. He is supported by Teck Seng Chew who took over as product manager for the port operations business in March. Under the new structure, customer and market needs are the focus of Continental’s developments in order to increase efficiency, safety and sustainability in the port business.

Why do you consider it important to be at TOC Europe?

We appreciate taking part in discussions, staying closely in touch with our customers and professionals, and keeping an eye on the latest trends and an ear to the ground within the industry. The European region stands for a technically interested one, and many customers from around the world are coming to the TOC Europe to discover the latest technological developments and trends within the industry. This makes the TOC Europe one of the leading port industry fairs and network events.

What message do you have for the TOC community who will be in Rotterdam?

Ports worldwide are facing changes, not least due to the current impact on global trade routes and supplies. Fluctuations in the demand and availability of cargo as well as delayed delivery times pose challenges for port operations. This is a challenging undertaking in which tires play an important role in order to keep the operations running. Let’s exchange with one another – and ride the wave with us.
