So what do we mean by loading dock equipment? Clearly, your loading dock is a very important aspect of your operation. With an inefficient loading dock, trucks back up in receiving - and goods being shipped back up into your distribution facility. Both of these outcomes don't tend to make you additional money - these are costly bottle necks, to be fixed immediately. Following are some semi automatic items of loading dock equipment that we sell which not only increase efficiency and therefore throughput, but also add to worker safety - which must always be a prime concern.
Automatic dock levelers - allow your loading dock to be mechanically lined up with your trucks saving the time and effort it takes to deploy a truck dock board. We also sell truck activated dock levelers - a specialized piece of loading dock equipment that uses the trucks force to raise a leveler and drop it right into the trailer - no effort for the worker at all! This saves about 5 minutes over a mechanical dock leveler and 20 minutes over a dock board.
A mechanical trailer lock latches to a truck's ICC bar, not letting the truck move when a forklift operator is still working. The trailer lock takes literally no time to deploy, as the truck bar is automatically grabbed when the dock is contacted. This saves at least 10 minutes per load and unloads - 12 times per day would equal 25% of an entire working day. Comparing 25% of an annual paycheck to a $4,000 piece of equipment shows the equipments value clearly. Additionally, forklift operators sometimes forget to chock wheels, or may even skip the procedure - because 'it can't happen to me' attitude on industrial accidents.
Other dock equipment includes strip doors, trailer jacks, foreman desks, platform trucks, expanding conveyors, and packing benches. Count on A Plus Warehouse for our expertise in loading dock equipment.
