The RCMS Consortium attended TOC Americas

rcmsTOC (The Terminal Operations Conference) has long been considered best in class by container terminal operators. TOC Americas is a market-focused conference & exhibition which takes place annually in one of the world’s key shipping hubs. This conference-led event is the complete container supply chain show for the Americas region, bringing together cargo owners, logistics providers, carriers, ports, terminals and other key stakeholders to learn, debate & network and their suppliers.

TOC Americas has been running since 2001 where it began in Miami. In 2016, TOC Americas returns to Mexico for the first time in 10 years for its 16th edition.

The RCMS Consortium attended TOC Americas (Cancun ICC-Cancun International Convention Center) (October 11th-13th).

The Horizon 2020 co-funded Project RCMS (Rethink Container Management Systems), which consists of the implementation of a Robotic Container Management System, an innovative infrastructure-specific and resource-efficient solution for enhanced cross-modal inter-connectivity and active container management, capable of providing optimal and adaptable responses to changes in conditions of multi-modal transport network by all actors in the value chain (shipping companies, port terminal operators, truck and railways companies), was invited to present the main features of the system itself.

On October 11th, Alexio Picco Project Coordinator, outlined the main RCMS features at the “THE TERMINALS OF TOMORROW: PORT PLANNING AND DESIGN” session.
