Planned Maintenance: Loading Dock Essentials

Planned Maintenance Program


PLANNED MAINTENANCE PROGRAMS

Save Time and Lower Costs

An efficient loading dock helps to eliminate unnecessary delays, while helping to improve safety and productivity. Keeping dock and industrial doors operating at peak performance is critical, and requires skilled maintenance on a regular basis.

For example, a typical dock leveler can see nearly 100,000 forklift crossings every year. That's a lot of wear and tear. Maintenance programs help protect your equipment investments. Look what else you can gain.

A planned maintenance program helps: 

» Reduce service repair costs up to 18% over the lifetime of your equipment.1
» Cut energy bills by 5% to 20%.2
» Improve equipment lifetime = greater ROI.1
» Reduce equipment failures = higher revenue and optimal productivity.2

Dock Shock

SAVE THE BACK

Dock shock injury describes the jarring effects a forklift driver experiences from traveling over bumps and gaps that often exist at the loading dock. Over time, these can lead to back and neck problems. One solution is a smooth transition dock leveler. Learn more.
