Dockzilla designed a custom cross dock building, which included 16 dock positions, and was assembled in a fraction of the time it takes to build a permanent structure. Set on Dockzilla’s modular, elevated steel platform foundation and covered with high-strength vinyl, the building included a complete warehouse package with all loading dock equipment, doors, stairs, electrical and HVAC. Each loading dock position featured Dockzilla’s externally-mounted Dock Houses and self-standing dock levelers, which were integrated into the tensional vinyl structure to absorb trailer impact.
Dockzilla’s purpose-built design eliminated unnecessary square footage and minimized the distance between dock doors to require fewer employee steps for unloading shipments, sorting, and transferring loaded hand carts to outbound vehicles.
The 6-month rental terms allowed the customer to quickly scale and process millions of packages—both shipping and reverse logistics returns—without committing to a long-term lease or permanent construction. The customer realized a return on investment in under 8 weeks and has applied the modular warehouse concept as a standard to add regional peak season capacity, test new markets, and service rural areas.
Prior to Hurricane Ian rolling in, the high-strength vinyl was easily removed while the aluminum and steel structure effortlessly weathered the storm. Dockzilla’s fast set-up allowed the customer to quickly reinstall the membrane covering and immediately resume operations following the storm – business as usual.
