How do maritime container terminals face up to the big ship challenge? As larger and larger vessels enter all shipping routes, even niche trades, terminals around the world are under increased pressure to improve productivity, reliability and efficiency. Meeting the challenges requires not simply bigger and faster equipment, but just as crucially more intelligent working practices and usage of the vast amounts of data collected from the mass material flows that characterise modern container terminals. All this is taking place at a time when the global port and terminal industries are facing demands to do business in a cleaner and safer way.

Achieving improved container terminal operating performance on all fronts will be the focus of three days of intensive debate and practical case studies at the new TECH TOC Conference, held as part of the 38th TOC Container Supply Chain Europe in Rotterdam on 25-27 June 2013. This free-to-attend conference will explore key topics including terminal automation, electrification, big data, handling system optimisation and more.

A centrepiece of the conference will be a debate session on Achieving Operational Excellence - Terminal Operator Plans, Priorities & Challenges. Port executives including Curtis J. Foltz, Executive Director at Georgia Ports Authority, USA, David Huck, Head of Port Operations for Peel Ports, UK and Tom Ward, Chief Engineer at Ports America will share international perspectives on how to take terminal performance to the next level.
