TOC Americas 2019 in Colombia

Ocean carriers, the regional maritime supply chain and ports community will discuss topics such as IMO 2020, digitalisation, trade outlook, supply chain integration and regional infrastructure at the 19th edition of TOC Americas.


Speakers and panellists include executives from from Maersk, MSC, Hamburg Süd, G2Ocean, CMA CGM, Evergreen, Seaboard Marine and X-Press Feeders.


MundoMaritimo, TOC Events’ partner for the Americas since 2003, talked to some of the senior shipping line executives attending the conference about their priority issues.

Lars Oestergaard Nielsen, President, Latin America & The Caribbean for Maersk Line, is “looking forward to some interesting conversations with our colleagues and peers on the IMO 2020 sulphur cap regulation during this year’s TOC Americas in Cartagena. This is probably one of the biggest transformations our industry will see in the coming years and we all need to be aware of the impact it represents and continue to support our efforts towards sustainable solutions for our environment.”

César Contreras, Port Captain Operations for G2Ocean, is “happy and excited to take part in this event as a break bulk carrier, as a perfect place and time to share so many different experiences with the best people from the maritime and port industry…With TOC’s help and network, I’m sure we’ll find good solutions to those daily struggles we all have with one common objective: high efficiency.”

María José Jara, Quality Control Manager at MSC says: “I’m excited about sharing industry experiences regarding digitalization. The changes ahead are so big that they only compare to the change of before and after the birth of containerization.”

Maximiliano Alcorta, Regional Operations Manager at MSC, said: “We have seen a lot of movement in the maritime and port industry in the past five years, however, the years to come will be even more disruptive and challenging for the industry. From blockchain, automation and unmanned ships to new trade routes resulting from the current trade wars, resource optimization and sustainability, all these are crucial topics and I hope they will all be addressed at the event in Cartagena.


"How are we preparing for all this? Each one of us cannot do it alone. TOC events help us discuss how to navigate these tricky waters, as well as being an excellent opportunity for doing business, networking and reuniting with friends.”
