Loading Dock Planning & Design
Loading Dock Planning and Design
Effective loading dock design and planning ensures that your operations can accommodate the material handling needs you have today as well as into the future. Rite-Hite stays current with changes in the trucking and material handling industry and can keep you informed of the new and innovative products available to meet your specific loading dock design needs. When your loading dock is set up to facilitate efficient loading and unloading as well as safe and secure movement of product, it has a direct impact on your bottom line.
Loading Dock Design for Today and Tomorrow
"Just-in-time" manufacturing and warehousing, high-cube trailers, and air-ride suspensions are some examples of developments that have made cookie-cutter dock designs obsolete.
When you bring a Rite-Hite loading dock expert into your planning and building process, you are making an investment for today and the future. Rite-Hite and our representatives have been working with architects, end-users, and contractors to stay on top of evolving trends to assure the best solutions for our customers. We take loading dock design so seriously that we have experts who instruct continuing education courses in dock design.
Dock Safety Presentations
Today, there's a growing realization that a safe loading dock depends on a lot of things, including up-to-date dock design, proper load-handling procedures, effective supervision, and trained people.
Because safety is such an important part of the material handling industry, Rite-Hite representatives offer a dock safety presentation that is registered as an AIA continuing education course in the United States*.
We recognize the serious need for products that improve loading dock, door, and in-plant safety. Rite-Hite’s research and development team has transformed the material handling industry with groundbreaking safety products such as Dok-Lok®, Safe-T-Lip® Leveler, Safe-T-Strut®, and FasTrax®.
