Dock Loading Pods

We understand the importance of Dock Loading Pods to your process flow and productivity, so we will supply everything that is required. Our solution will include everything you would expect, including: load house, base frame, dock levellers, inflatable dock shelter, insulated sectional overhead door, traffic light system, wheel guides, buffers, and bollards. Our service also includes a yard survey highlighting vehicle movement to ensure both safety and efficiency.

Cross-docking facilities have traditionally been used at regional distribution centres but with ever increasing restrictions in accessing major cities, due to environmental concerns, are becoming increasingly popular for off-loading trailers into smaller vehicles, usually electric. They are also ideal for airports or ports for reducing inventory carrying costs by ensuring stock is available sooner, as well as driving down supply chain costs.

Features and options available include:

  • Attached storage set at chill, freeze, or ambient.
  • Spacious handling areas with the option of refrigeration.
  • The option to split the handling area to segment product types e.g. frozen, chilled and ambient.
  • A range of loading dock quantities and sizes suited to your requirements.
  • Data logging equipment for product traceability.
