Loading Dock Equipment You Should Have

Loading Dock Equipment You Should Have

There is no universal list of loading dock equipment that you must adhere to. The kind of loading dock equipment you need will depend entirely on the nature and scope of your operations. The kind of materials you deal with, the needs of your workers, the exact type of dock you have and the load you have to manage. These are the primary factors. The modus operandi of loading and unloading, the exact methods you use or how you have to load and unload the tonnages will also influence the choice of loading dock equipment. Some companies may need more dock seals and dock levelers while some would require more custom yard ramps. The nature of the operation will be the default criteria determining the loading dock equipment you should have.


Taking a broader view of the typical operations, you would need the following loading dock equipment: dock levelers, dock seals, dock shelters, safety equipment, specialty levelers, trailer stabilizing jacks, yard ramps and other loading dock equipment such as dock boards and plates, pallet equipment, safety gates and trailer equipment among others.
