The Port Equipment Manufacturers Association (PEMA) will host several seminars at the upcoming TOC Container Supply Chain Americas exhibition held in Panama, December 4-6, where leading ports and terminals, equipment and technology suppliers will gather to discuss the future of container handling across the Americas.
This year’s 12th TOC Americas gets underway with a PEMA-hosted forum that comprehensively explores the latest developments in terminal equipment and technology. This is the sixth fast-paced interview-style forum that PEMA has held in recent years.
It is a unique opportunity for attendees to ask direct questions to the world’s top terminal handling equipment suppliers. These interactive, unscripted sessions generate active debate and substantive discussions, and will be moderated by veteran port technology journalist Paul Avery, Associate Editor at World Cargo News.
Speakers include PEMA Safety Committee Vice Chairman Stephan Stiehler and Laurence Jones of the TT Club and ICHCA International. The PEMA Forum runs from 10:00-16:30 and all sessions are free to attend for all attendees. To download the full PEMA Forum programme, visit: www.pema.org
