            TOC Europe is an institution in the world of container ports. This prominent event takes place in a European seaport each year and puts professionals in the sector in touch with the newest relevant developments and technologies. The Dutch capital, Amsterdam, this year will provide the backdrop for the latest edition of this event. The main focus is on the exhibition with more than 160 exhibitors. In addition, the associated seminars and conferences also deserve mention. If you are visiting the TOC Europe and the Merford stand this year, we are pleased to welcome you! Registration for the exhibition is free.

            Crucial Link
            The role of ports in the container supply chain is crucial. The process of transferring a container from sea to land and vice versa is not self-evident, and it is critical for this link to be in optimal condition. This is why a great deal of attention is focused on technologies that help keep a grip on this process, help improve the process, or help reduce the chance of errors. Suppliers of products and services that are in a position to make a contribution are present at the TOC Europe Exhibition. As a supplier of solutions for crane operators, Merford will also have a stand at the exhibition. 

            Remote Control and Automation
            The industry is in transition to a new phase. Until recently, virtually every crane was equipped with a cabin from which the operator kept control over the process. Technological developments are not standing still, and the technology is becoming more and more reliable. This is why ports increasingly are making use of the opportunities provided by automation. Regardless of a port's stage of development, Merford provides solutions for the operator that contribute to a good working climate, the operator's health and process efficiency. At our TOC stand, you will discover solutions for every stage of the development; the latest version of the Ergoseat, our ergonomic operator chair, and the newest Remote Control Station. Please also feel free to talk with the Merford representatives about the crucial role the operator can play in the process towards operational excellence and automation.

            TOC Europe will be held from Tuesday 27 June up to and including Thursday 29 June in Hall 8 of the RAI Convention Centre in Amsterdam. We are located at Stand F56. The exhibition hall is open from 10:00 - 18:00 on Tuesday and Wednesday, and from 10:00 - 15:00 on Thursday. Click here to register and you will receive a free admission pass.
