Continental at TOC Europe 2023: Smart Ports and Digital Solutions in Focus
Federico Jiménez, Head of Business Field Port Operation Tires, explains; “We are seeing a growing need among our customers to further automate their processes, especially at major ports. In this regard, tires play a crucial role in ensuring the terminal infrastructure of tomorrow functions seamlessly.”
With digital solutions such as ContiConnect 2.0 and the associated maintenance support, Continental offers its customers more efficient and sustainable fleet management. A product highlight at the booth will be the new Bluetooth-capable sensor which enables tire data to be read directly from a smartphone. Continental will offer a fascinating insight into ContiConnect 2.0 at the trade fair. Visitors will find Continental at booth F54.
Teck Seng Chew, Product Manager for Port Operation Tires adds; “We look forward to bringing the smart port of the future into the present and sharing our vision of tomorrow's port operations." Since the realignment of Continental Specialty Tires, Federico Jiménez has taken over the management of the Business Field Tires for Port Operations. He is supported by Teck Seng Chew, who was appointed product manager 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.
