Loading and Offloading Freight with Ease

Loading Dock Benefits

Here’s a typical scenario: Your business operation involves a team of employees responsible for loading and offloading inventory at various points in your facility. Your stock arrives at the loading bay and must be moved from the arriving delivery vehicle to your dock bay.

In turn, the team must move stock to other areas for processing—say, putting together your components piece by piece. In moving inventory into and throughout the facility, the team might use a forklift, a dolly, a cart, sheer muscle, or a combination of those. Eventually, you package and return the finished product to the loading bay for pickup.

Many operations have loading docks that are not accessible to the delivery vehicle, and for a variety of possible reasons. The height of the dock may differ from the height of the truck container, or the alley may be too narrow for the truck to back into proper alignment with the loading bay.

That’s where a portable loading dock becomes an essential part of your operation. Your team can position the loading dock safely, and with speed and ease. The loading dock is also able to handle the weight of your deliveries (of course, with proper specifications for your requirements, and we confirm this as part of our sales and rental process).
