One of our significant tool to facilitate the energy-efficient and cost-effective transport and delivery network is the loading dock system. It is composed of the loading dock that is normally known as the loading and unloading bay, loading dock leveler that connects the loading dock and the delivery vehicle and finally the loading dock seal and/or shelter that serves as the dock door to seal the heat and cold elements inside the storage area.
Let’s talk about safety measures and the loading dock leveler. The latter is deemed as one of the important yet most ignored equipment in the warehouse facility. This equipment is part and parcel of the loading dock system as it serves as the bridge between the lip of the loading dock and the delivery vehicle. Meaning, loading dock leveler plays a vital role during the conduct of loading and unloading of goods to maintain the safety of the relevant deliveries. The regular inspection and maintenance of the loading dock leveler is highly recommended to be conducted.
