Description

A
dock is utilised for the quick and efficient loading/unloading of product to
and from trailer or container units.

Automated
dock loading and unloading systems are materials handling solutions that load
or unload trucks and trailers automatically by using different kinds of
conveyors, rollers, skates, docks and drives. Automated dock loading and
unloading usually requires two systems: a system in the trailer and a system
inside the dock. When the trailer is positioned at the dock, the entire load is
loaded or unloaded automatically.

These
systems are an essential component of a smooth and profitable logistics system
and can be integrated into warehouse management systems, automated guided
vehicles and production lines.
