KIERAN RING TO CHAIR TOC MIDDLE EAST

The Global Institute of Logistics will moderate 3 sessions in the upcoming Middle East Terminal Operators Conference in Dubai

KIERAN RING CEO GIL
CONFERENCE CHAIR TOC MIDDLE EAST

The Institute has collaborated extensively with the conference producers to shift the emphasis to focus on issues affecting the cargo owner and shipping line as well as the container terminal. As a result future delegates at TOC will begin to see a ‘TOC Container Supply Chain Stream’ which will focus on the movement of cargo from manufacturer to destination. Now 3pls, port authorities, lines and cargo owners will join the terminal operators to create a port centric container master event.

"I am delighted to be once again asked to moderate at TOC, I am particularly looking forward to experiencing the new format and emphasis"
