Dock loading/unloading technology

Sunday, 01 June, 2008 | Supplied by: Industrial Conveying (Aust) Pty Ltd

Industrial Conveying is custom designing, manufacturing and installing a range of devices for bulk loading (and unloading) palletised product into shipping containers.

This bolsters the company’s existing suite of dock loading systems that includes the unique Airlift, Airola, Airchain and Transkate systems that use trucks at the delivery points.

These systems are powered and allow efficient movement of stock to eliminate bottlenecks, double handling, dormant freight and delivery delays.

The vehicle/container is raised to a correct height to enable efficient loading (and unloading) with powered docks. Skates for the dock are constructed to allow minimum sideways movement of the load.

This bulk loading system is designed to cater for 20 and 40 ft containers. During handling, vehicle/container docking alignment are controlled and verified electronically.

The docks themselves are designed to both load and unload the containers.

Loads are prepared on loading dock while trucks are in transit. Once the truck arrives, the vehicle/container loading time is normally less than 5 mins.
