As a leading supplier of brake systems, instrumentation, vehicle electronics and infotainment solutions, as well as systems and components for power trains and chassis, tyres and technical elastomers, Continental contributes to enhanced driving safety and global climate protection.
This is also the driver behind Continental’s production of cross-ply, radial and solid tyres. Contrary to nearly all our competitors, this enables us to offer tyres that exactly match the needs and demands of our customers, and not merely fit into our product range.
In the harbour environment, tyres are an endangered species. They have to carry those terrific vehicles plus the heavy cargo load. Add to this the often sporty ways of driving.
A terminal's surface displays so called hot spots. This is where steady braking, accelerating and cornering has left its mark. The result is block crackings, rutting, and even potholes. For this reason we have put together Continental's port package.
Second only to fuel costs, tyres are the second largest expenditure in the maintenance of a terminal. Moreover, at this moment in time there are more and more terminals established all over the world, while many established ports are also growing.
Hence there is a lot of money to earn if you have something good to offer. And we have. Continental's Portpackage is a customised portfolio of speciality tyres which will help to keep vehicles in operation.
