Dockzilla in Action:
Portable Loading Docks Create Loading Opportunities
Under the Ecommerce growth model, shopping centers are becoming online order pickup destinations or fulfillment space for local deliveries. When the loading docks at a shopping center are maxed out, a Portable Loading Dock can maximize the ample parking lot space to create a thriving loading/unloading area.
With former big box retailers moving out of their physical properties to focus on online retail, these buildings can be easily retrofitted into a distribution center. When additional dock positions are needed, modular Dock Houses provide an “velcro dock” approach that is bolted to the building, yet is easily removed and relocated when needed. Dock Houses eliminate companies having to cutaway from a building’s existing floor space to construct a loading dock, and protects the warehouse interior and products from theft, rodents, and harmful outside elements.
Mobile Loading Dock
Urban in-fill centers and warehouses offer valued proximity to the end customer, but can lack space for traditional loading dock operations. Offering a modern approach, Mobile Loading Docks include wheels for easy maneuvering into place by a forklift. When the job is finished, these docks are easily moved again for storage or to tackle a loading job elsewhere on property.
Self-Standing Cross Docks
Modular Cross Dock loading systems mimic permanent set-ups at major retail fulfillment centers. These self-standing units can be set up virtually anywhere on property to avoid traffic jams by receive incoming trailers, sort loads, then move product cross-dock for immediate transport. Online meal delivery companies significantly benefit from self-standing cross docks for expedited unloading/sorting/reloading without having to store perishables.
