Pallets and loose cargo at the same door

Are your loading docks as flexible as you need them to be?

Becoming more flexible is often the solution to optmizing capacity. Are your loading docks built for the dual purpose of handling loose-loaded unit items as well as palletized and/or caged goods?

Don’t resort to palletizing loose-loaded goods manually, so you can move them traditionally. This labour-intensive routine slows the logistics process down considerably. Instead, it makes much more sense to upgrade the loading dock, so all types of cargo can be handled cost-effectively.

If your loading dock can handle all cargo types systematically, you can despatch boxes rather than partially loaded pallets. The same loading dock can be used for store replenishment, pallet distribution, and unloading containers from overseas.

Upgrading your loading dock isn’t expensive or time consuming, nor does it require that routines be radically changed.

Same loading dock for pallets, cages & loose-loaded goods

The presence of a leveller at the loading dock does not affect the possibility of installing a Telescopic Conveyor. 

When loading docks are used for dual purposes, a mobile Telescopic can be the answer. Fitted on rails or castors, this can be moved away from the loading dock when not in use. A mobile Telescopic Conveyor functions in exactly the same way as a stationary Telescopic Conveyor. 

Alternatively, Caljan Performer can be FIXED well behind the door, leaving ample room for forklift traffic when the conveyor is not in use. When in use the Telescopic can reach over the leveller and into the very back of a 53 ft trailer.

If goods need to be palletized for storage, taking them out of the container first by means of a Telescopic Conveyor provides a better work environment for your employees.
