How to Maximize the Efficiency at Your Loading Dock Facilities in Charlotte, NC?
Information is out of date

Overhead Door Company of Charlotte can make your loading dock maximize its full potential that can provide on-time services, the safety of employees and its assets, and also several benefits.

The busiest part of a warehouse or facility is the loading docks. With so many equipment, trailer trucks, goods and items, and employees moving around, it can be so difficult and hard to make it more efficient and improve its productivity.      


That is the reason why we’ve made these eight ways to maximize its efficiency to increase the productivity of your loading dock area:


Maximizing Proper Airflow


A good and well-ventilated facility will allow employees to stay comfortable and healthy as possible, which will raise their morale, increase work productivity, and more dollar profits coming in. Facility airflow can be improved by installing HVLS Fans. HVLS Fans like The AirVolution-D 550, the ideal solution for air movement in your mid-sized spaces, and AIRVOLUTION-D 780, the most powerful industrial ceiling fan in the world, both can deliver massive airflow to cool your extra-large spaces while keeping your warehouse at a comfortable working temperature for your employees.


Good Lighting


By properly lighting up the loading dock bay’s loading and unloading areas, the workers can speed up their workloads and manage properly around their equipment and devices in a safe manner. 24/7 safety lights can provide a safe working environment by preventing hazards and accidents from happening.       

High-performance Equipment 


The Autodok® H Series Hydraulic Leveler and McGuire Air-powered Dock Levelers are the most efficient and essential high-performance dock leveler options. With a touch of a button, they will automatically function with efficiency, stability and more savings with its low-cost maintenance features.


Safe Zones


As always, safety first. Safety measures can be done with safety equipment and devices like McGuire’s Barrier Lip Leveler, which prevents lift trucks from driving off the edge of the dock and Hold-Tite® Push Button Vehicle Restraint, which virtually eliminating “trailer creep” accidents from happening. Remember a safe loading dock is a profitable loading dock.


Strict Compliance of Procedures


To ensure efficiency and safety, all dock equipment, and employees at the loading dock area should follow highly systematized company procedures. That is why Overhead Door Company of Charlotte, a Division of DuraServ has a maximized operational and improved energy efficiencies by providing and installing the right products to meet the demands of today’s competitive environment. Offering loading dock services such as for new construction, remodeling, and Turnkey Solutions, across the nation for manufacturing, food pharmaceutical, and beverage industries. 




Proper, clear and constant communication assures the loading dock processes involving the loading, unloading, and vehicle departure to take place safely and efficiently. The APS LED Guide Lights provides a light communication feature that sends safety signals to dock staff and truck drivers during unloading and loading workloads. 


Vertical Dock Levelers


A loading dock will be useless without loading dock levelers, one of the most essential equipment that safely speeds up the process and eliminating unnecessary workloads. Overhead Door Company of Charlotte offers a variety of dock levelers like mechanical dock levelers, hydraulic dock levelers, air-powered dock levelers, and specialty dock levelers. 


As tested and proven McGuire’s loading dock products such as McGuire’s mechanical dock leveler, McGuire hydraulic dock leveler, and McGuire® CentraAir® (CA) air-powered dock leveler, are an economical solution and can provide an efficient system during the loading and unloading of goods to maintain safe and productive relevant delivery. 


Trailer and Truck Restraints 


Vehicle restraint is a must for loading docks. During the unloading process, when a truck docks they need to be secured and safely stable to avoid misalignments that can cause hazards and accidents. Powered vehicle restraints such as the TPR UniLock® Automatic Vehicle Restraint. TPR UniLock is the only trailer-positioned vehicle restraint that can automatically remove “RIG Wedge” pressure, this when the trailer is pushed forward during loading/unloading and the trailer’s Rear Impact Guard (RIG) applies so much pressure to the restraint’s hook that the truck driver must reverse the trailer to release the restraint. 


Considering all the means necessary at your disposal, you can finally have an efficient loading dock that operates on time and safe and offers several benefits such as increase customer satisfaction, low maintenance costs, and more company profits.
