TOC Americas is part of a global portfolio of events that bring together stakeholders of the container supply chain to learn, debate and network.
TOC (The Terminal Operations Conference) has long been considered best in class by container terminal operators and their suppliers. Over time, TOC has evolved and whilst we continue to deliver the highest quality technical content in line with our heritage, we also recognise that we must now hear from stakeholders higher up the cargo chain.
Therefore, there are now two distinct elements to the event:
The exhibition is a showcase for port & terminal technology and operations. This includes TECH TOC, the free to attend technical conference, aimed at terminal operators and their suppliers. Many suppliers come together to showcase cutting edge solutions to their clients, the terminal operators and ports.
More recently, the events now placed a new focus on the container supply chain making them the premier business and networking event for the stakeholders, including shippers, carriers and 3pl’s as well as the global operators and port authorities. This conversation takes place in the more recently created Container Supply Chain Conference.
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 or delays 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.
TOC Americas has been running since 2001 where it began in Miami. The 18th edition will be held in Panama.
