TOC Europe is widely considered to be the global meeting place for ports, terminals, shipping lines, 3PLs and shippers, providing key stakeholder in these industries with the opportunity to learn, debate and network. Since the launch ofour DOCKSOLID brand in 2014,  supplying state-of-the-art port equipment has become a cornerstoe of the business, meaning this event is the ideal opportunity to show why DOCKSOLID is held in such high regard. We were at the 2017 event which was undoubtedly a success, for us as a company but also as an event in general.

These are encapsulated in the brand's tagline: Clean. Flexible. Robust.

The brand was launched in early May 2014, to coincide with the order to two ship unloading hoppers designed for ABP, to be delivered to the Port of Hull in the coming weeks.
