Conti says interest in harbour range high
According to Continental, the habour tyre range it unveiled at the TOC Container Supply Chain Europe exhibition in Rotterdam in July has struck a chord with port operators. The company claims that more than half the respondents to a recent survey plan to purchase or recommend the newly-released range.
“The positive feedback reassures us that our products are well perceived by the market,” said Dr. Michael Andreas Maertens, managing director of Continental CST. “We will continue to focus on tyre solutions for customers in specialised logistics segments such as the harbour business. A reasonable decision for us: port logistics, for example, are expected to grow steadily and surveys indicate that cargo volumes will double by 2024.”
