About TOC Middle East 2020

The Middle East’s premier event for people who own, move & handle containerised cargo

TOC Middle East 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 chain event, delivering both technical content and also offering a platform to stakeholders higher up in the cargo chain.

Therefore, there are now two distinct elements of the event:

toc middle east exhibition

Port Technology Exhibition

This world-class exhibition is a showcase of the latest port & terminal technology and operations, plus FREE technical seminars (including TECH TOC & BULK) aimed at terminal operators and their suppliers.

Technology and service providers come together here to showcase the latest cutting edge solutions to their clients, the terminal operators and the region’s ports.


toc middle east conference

Container Supply Chain Conference

The high-level Container Supply Chain Conference is co-located with each TOC event and is aimed at C-Suite strategic personnel including shippers, carriers and 3PL’s as well as global operators and port authorities.

In 2020, many of the conversations within the conference will focus around digitalisation and 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 or delays that occur at the quayside or port hinterland dramatically affect the time it takes for cargo to arrive at its destination, therefore ports need to process cargo in a timely and cost effective manner using the latest technology on the market.

At TOC we are here to serve the industry – we place the port at the centre of the supply chain and have done so throughout our 40-years’ of history and heritage
