Continental Tire is introducing its new new radial port tire portfolio at this year’s TOC Europe in Rotterdam, developed to meet the exacting demands of vehicles utilized in terminal operations.
The technology company will show its complete port product range at the trade fair, including V.ply tires, radial tires and digital solutions. TOC Europe takes place from June 18 – 20 in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
New radial tires: High mileage and endurance for load & carry applications
With the launch of three new radial tires for port applications – the ContiRT20 in 24” sizes, the ContainerMaster Radial and the StraddleMaster Radial – Continental begins a new chapter in its port history. The tires are perfectly suited to various vehicle types utilized in load & carry applications, including heavy forklift trucks, empty container handlers, reach stackers, straddle carriers and terminal tractors, amongst others.
Holistic product range: Extensive portfolio fits all customer requirements
Also on display at TOC Europe will be Continental’s V.ply tires with Port Plus Compound, which are the perfect solution for typical pick & stack applications. When loading and unloading containers around the container stack, mobile crane type vehicles such as reach stackers, empty container handlers and rubber tired gantry cranes (RTG), need to drive short distances at low speed. However, they have a high load requirement and a high degree of turning on the spot. The V.ply construction offers good stability and wear; the strong sidewalls and the highly abrasive and crack-resistant compound make them the perfect solution for these daily challenges.
With the expansion of the port portfolio, Continental is able to offer the most suitable tire for all required vehicle/application combinations. Whether a vehicle is designated to perform pick & stack or load & carry applications, or even both tasks, customers can rely on the extensive experience of Continental.
Visitors will find Continental Commercial Specialty Tires (CST) at booth D72 in Hall 1 at Rotterdam Ahoy.
