Benefits of Quality Loading Dock Equipment

Loading docks increase productivity by cutting down on transition times between moving goods from a truck to the dock. With easier handling, enhanced safety, and a reduced risk of material damage, employees can streamline the loading and unloading process, increasing your company’s efficiency and profitability.

Crucial for clear visibility and safety, proper dock lighting and communications systems help workers easily navigate trucks, especially during evening hours. LED, incandescent, and fluorescent lighting options are available. Dock light products we offer include the following:

  • LED Dock Lights
  • LED Strip Lights
  • High Bay Lights
  • Motion-Activated Lights
  • Warning Lights
  • Exterior Area Lighting
  • Emergency Lighting

Responsible for keeping a truck or other vehicle secure during loading and unloading; vehicle restraints prevent the separation of the truck from the loading dock. If a truck pulls away from the dock, workers can be injured, and goods and equipment can be damaged. Restraints are especially important when forklifts and other large equipment are involved in the loading and unloading process. Choose between mechanical, hydraulic, or electric wheel restraints, trailer restraints, or vehicle restraints with communication systems and automatic wheel chocking.
