A while back we wrote a very popular blog offering some dock leveler maintenance tips and given the success we decided to revisit this subject once again. Take a look at these helpful tips for maintaining your dock leveler:
Sometimes overlooked on maintenance schedules, the loading dock and the dock leveler in particular ought to be included in loading dock maintenance plans. From a mechanical dock leveler to a vertical storing dock leveler, these tips are sure to help you get your dock leveler bridging the gap and moving your product from the trailer to the warehouse without any interference.
- Operation: Every now and then do a dock leveler raise test, raise the leveler to full height and make sure it does so smoothly. Are there any springs or binding that might need to be adjusted? Check all of the dock level supports and tug on chains to be certain they’re in safe working order.
- Fluid Levels: Hydraulic dock levelers call for the occasional fluid check. Perform this check with the dock leveler resting and the lip pendant. Every year, you will need to drain, flush and change the hydraulic oil.
- Lubrication: Again, a 90 day check is required on all pivot points, pins and hinge tubes on your leveler, during this check you should also lubricate. Refer to your owner’s manual for exact lubrication points and types.
- Cleaning: Loading docks get dirty, it’s a given. If you have a pit-style dock leveler you know just how dirty! Sweeping will help to clean the dock leveler pit and surrounding areas, we suggest doing this every 3 months. The higher the loading dock traffic the more frequent the sweeping.
- Visual Inspection: It is a good habit to visually inspect your dock leveler every 90 days. Look for any noticeable signs of wear and tear. Also, peek at any warning labels and ensure that they are still attached to the dock leveler. Bumpers generally wear down over time, so have a look at these and check whether or not you have the recommended 4” of dock bumper remaining. Some dock levelers are welded into place; check these welds to see how they’re holding up.
While these tips are here to help, as always we advise you to refer to your owner’s manual for additional and more specific information. Take good care of your dock leveler and plan your dock leveler maintenance today.

When you think of a big-time heist, armed robbers getting away with thousands or millions of dollars, rarely do you think of cigarettes, perfume or maple syrup. Perhaps, jewelry, diamonds or even pricey electronics sound more like it? The reality is, when it comes to a burglary that occurs at a warehouse lacking in security, thieves can take enough 30 dollar bottles of perfume or empty enough drums of maple syrup to rack up quite a steal. 4SIGHT addresses security concerns while decreasing inefficiencies in the yard and at the dock.
According to a crime report by The Federal Bureau of Investigation, in 2011, two brothers from New Jersey robbed a Carlstadt, N.J., perfume warehouse in which approximately $500,000 in perfume was stolen. Prior to this, in January 2010, the two brothers made away with $8 million worth of cigarettes after robbing a warehouse in East Peoria, Illinois.
F.B.I. records also report that later the same year, in March, these brothers would play an integral role in what has been termed as the largest pharmaceutical heist in U.S. history. For many warehouse owners the March 2010 break-in of the warehouse in Enfield, Connecticut, marked the realization that better security systems were needed. If a group of 11 thieves could purchase supplies at Home Depot and use these tools to steal $80 million worth of drugs, clearly security measures need to be reevaluated.
In December 2012, The New York Times reported a very different warehouse burglary. This time the commodity was even more unusual. Authorities in Quebec, Canada, worked diligently in an attempt to recover $18 million worth of valuable Canadian maple syrup that was stolen from Global Strategic Maple Syrup Reserve. By renting another portion of the warehouse for an unrelated business, thieves were able to drive large trucks into the building without causing alarm. Over time, they loaded up enough trucks to make away with 16,000 drums of maple syrup.
The unfortunate variable that connects each of these burglaries is lack of adequate security systems.
One solution to increase warehouse security is through technology. Installing a system that monitors your yard and dock in real-time is a superb way to sharpen visibility and ensure high security. By using RFID and GPS, 4SIGHT Yard and Dock Management System can decrease inefficiencies in the yard and keep an eye on the goings-on at the dock. This intelligent software integrates with dock equipment through a network of sensors, providing a deeper layer of control.
Imagine having the ability to remotely close all dock doors from a single location. With a system such as this you have that control. You can also lock out dock equipment and allow only authorized personnel to enter the dock at any given time with biometrics such as fingerprint identification. Additionally, should an alarm at your warehouse go-off, this system is capable of recognizing whether or not it is a security breach or regular operations. This feature alone saves time and money on costs associated with investigating false alarms.
Simply put, a yard and dock management system helps to keep your warehouse and product secure, and in the right hands.

We learn a lot from sayings, those short pitchy expressions that contain useful advice or great wisdom. Like the kind of words spoken by your grandmother, words that you never forget. If safety training were as influential as ‘sayings’ the loading dock would be a safer place to venture. If employees rhymed off safety protocols like grandma’s wise words, hazardous incidents would surely decrease.
Let’s take a look at some well-known sayings and see how they compare to loading dock safety.
Don’t cry over spilled milk.
Great one reminding us not to sweat the small stuff or maybe it’s a clue to wise up. I mean don’t cry over the fact that you just spilled milk all over the floor, instead cry when a worker accidently runs into the milk, skids, falls and injures themselves. Maybe, the key here is prevention. On the loading dock prevention is vital. There is no room for error when you are surrounded by huge heavy machinery and forklifts flying around the place. The only way to ensure safety is through prevention.
Pick yourself up and try again.
Positive words and a great attitude to bestow on your little leaguers, however, not ideal for the loading dock. The attitude at the loading dock and in many manufacturing environments has got to be more like, ‘get it right the first time.’ Train your way to zero defects. Employees who are thoroughly versed on safety measures are more likely to respond to crisis situations appropriately. In fact, it is more likely that the number of hazardous incidents will reduce when training methods are extensive.
Live and learn.
While this is very true and applicable to most environments, on the loading dock these principles are synonymous. If you learn everything there is to know about the equipment that you will operate, you are less likely to do something that could cause yourself or someone else harm.
Take a look at these 3 products that increase loading dock safety.
- Vehicle restraints are crucial components for dock safety. These devices secure trailers to prevent early departure or separation from the dock during loading/unloading.
- Serco’s PitBull® Safety-Loc® vehicle restraint has a bite that locks on tight, engaging a trailer’s rear impact guard and securing it in place. This safety device is far more effective than traditional rubber wheel chocks.
- Master Control Panels can interlock the controls for multiple pieces of equipment into a single box to ensure operational procedures are followed and that equipment is used in the proper and safest sequence.
- Kelley’s Master Control Panels combine the operating controls for all dock devices into one compact panel to improve communication and streamline loading dock procedures.
- Dock shelters consist of fabric attached to side/head frames and for a perimeter seal for the trailer side and top. By sheltering the loading dock from rain and snow you can also prevent slips and falls caused by wet slippery floors.
- FLEXFRAME® Dock Shelter, this shelter services a wide variety of vehicle sizes and types. It provides full trailer access during the loading process. It’s gravity-biased with a flexible frame which is forgiving to misguided vehicles, and prevents damage.
Think before you leap.
This is the most appropriate saying for the loading dock. Loading dock operators need to be alert at all times, thinking about what it is that they are doing. Workers should always be looking for warning signs and communicate any danger immediately.
Facility management ought to think before they leap into buying the less expensive version of a new piece of capital dock equipment. After all, you might save now but you could pay later.

Switching to LED’s could save enough to light more than 95 million homes in the US.
As always, that will depend on who leaves the loading dock lights on. However, there are studies which detail just how much you can save from changing your current incandescent or halogen bulbs to LEDs. In one such study, performed by The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the emphasis was on savings. The study focused on a 20 year period, spanning 2010 to 2030. The results describe just how much could be saved from 2010 to 2030 if we were to collectively change our bulbs to LEDs. The cumulative energy savings are estimated to total approximately $120 billion at today’s energy prices. Impressively, in the year 2030, a calculated savings of 190 terawatt-hours is expected. This is enough energy to light more than 95 million homes in the U.S.
Put the smart light on at the Loading Dock!
Dock lighting is an important subject. Dock lighting design should be based on the principles of functionality and safety. However, before construction is completed it is sometimes difficult to foresee where shadows and grey areas may emerge.
There are ways around this.
Let someone else shed the light for you.
Find a similar facility and ask them if you can do a walkabout.
- Ask them questions about their lights
- Look for problem areas and take notes
- Ask for product recommendations
Loading dock lights should be rugged enough to withstand even the most severe fork lift, trailer and product load impacts. Loading dock lights can receive quite a beating. A dock light with a flexible arm is best because it moves the lamp out of the way upon impact and allows for easy repositioning. In this type of rough n’ tough environment an ideal solution would be the FT Ultra LED™ Docklight from APS Resource. This light has a stainless steel flexible arm for easy positioning and durability.
Another factor that is somewhat overlooked when purchasing dock lighting is the various unloading and loading shift hours that exist. For overnight hours, you must ensure that your loading dock is well lit and likewise, that you have sufficient illumination inside the trailer.
Information is vital, make a lighting plan.
- Embrace safe habits, such as: always turn a light on when you enter a room.
- Use signage that reminds workers when lighting is dim, take extra care.
Assess work areas for poor lighting.
- Glare. This occurs when one part of the visual field is much brighter than the other. Glare causes, discomfort, annoyance, irritability and can cause distraction.
- Shadows. Equipment such as machinery can cast shadows and hinder an employee’s vision, and thus, increase the likelihood of an accident occurring. Shadows are something that should be taken into consideration when lighting type and layout is being designed.
- Flicker. This is light modulation at lower frequencies and our eyes are sensitive to it. It can cause discomfort and fatigue.
With replacement LED lamps available, such as the APS Resource E-Saver™ 30 LED Lamp you can easily update your dock lights without spending a ridiculous amount of money.
Turn the smart lights on and turn the money guzzlers off for good. Contact APS Resource today and get your LED efforts into gear: 262-518-1000 or request more information
In the United States, truffles are found in the forests of Washington State and Oregon. Hogs or ‘Truffle Hogs’ are used to sniff out these rare mushrooms. While the LoadHog will never be used to sniff out any form of fungi, it’s sure to sniff out some pretty impressive benefits for your loading dock.
It is no secret that warehousing operations have been searching for a better solution to their loading dock needs than edge-of-dock levelers, portable plates and many mechanical pit-styled dock levelers can provide.
The LoadHog is a modular dock bridge designed to span the gap between the warehouse and the trailer that mounts to the warehouse floor using only four heavy-duty anchor bolts and requires no concrete work. The bumper block assembly attaches to the face of the dock with four anchors per bumper.
Storing upright, the LoadHog allows the dock door to close tight against the floor, minimizing energy loss and employee theft. Not to mention, the added benefits of greater protection against accidental forklift run-off. No concrete pit means no sanitary issues related to debris or rodents and wash-down is far more effective. This feature is very attractive to cold storage facilities that store valuable food commodities. Less energy loss and increased reach when cleaning in and around the modular dock bridge are two highly sought after attributes.
The deck length, lip and bumpers allow access to a large range of trailers. LoadHog's unique arc design and raised side housings provides structural integrity to withstand pallet jack and forklift traffic. The 17" pre-ramp allows smooth transition from the warehouse floor to the deck and is easily replaceable should it ever be damaged.
Activating the LoadHog is also simple. You don’t need to be a heavy-weight champion to store this modular dock bridge. A gentle forward push lowers the deck and LoadHog descends slowly into the trailer. When the truck is ready to leave, the dockworker pulls the operating handle to raise the deck to its stored and locked position, requiring approximately 38 lbs. of lifting force.
For more information on the LoadHog and to learn about ways this modular dock bridge can increase efficiency at your loading dock call one of our LoadHog experts today at 1-866-696-2464 and get to sniffing out those benefits!
If you are interested in information technology you have probably heard quite a lot about ‘Big Data.’ Businesses are becoming increasingly interested in big-picture analytics. This data is not so much about just getting the job done as it is about generating insight for the future. Many folks spanning various industries claim big-data’s value as under-realized. They attribute this boom in data happy analyzers to more prosperous business times ahead. There is new data popping up around the yard and dock as well. 4SIGHT Yard and Dock Management System works to collect data through the combined use of RFID, GPS and sensor technologies. This useful data can be used to increase productivity at your dock and yard and/or to forecast potential issues facing your supply chain.
4SIGHT Yard and Dock Management System heightens your daily visibility, allowing you to see everything that is happening on and around your loading dock and yard. Increasing visibility so you can immediately spot inefficiencies in the yard before it becomes a problem and rack up detention charges. This intelligent software displays activity such as dock door usage, trailer location and identification, off-loading time remaining per dock position and much more. It presents this information through a user friendly interface.
So what can 4SIGHT offer you insofar as future insights and analytics?
As is the case with big-data, 4SIGHT offers customers a means of exploring data through its reporting feature. Although this loading dock and yard management software deals with smaller data, the results are just as big. Metrics are automatically taken from your yard productivity and dock activity. You may never have even considered this data prior to implementing this system. These metrics will spark questions about your current processes and offer insight so you can expand on productivity and reduce inefficiencies in the yard and at the loading dock.
Take for example, each dock position usage data. With this information you have the power to schedule equipment maintenance based on actual usage as opposed to a traditional time-based schedule. Dock usage data is collected and displayed, and the system automatically identifies loading docks that have reached a usage threshold. When this occurs, the system automatically sends out an email to service providers and maintenance managers. Affected dock doors can be automatically locked out for maintenance. This strategic practice does away with ‘unnecessary’ maintenance that occurs simply because time suggests it should. This new loading dock insight saves you on labor costs and increases equipment life.
More data paints a bigger picture.
4SIGHT provides users an experience like no other warehouse management system, YMS or DMS has before. Metrics and reports are based on an almost unlimited number of parameters. From monitoring gate performance to optimizing efficiency with carrier arrival and departure data you can help prioritize trailer movements and tasks. Just imagine receiving tailored reports to help monitor trailer status and storage dwell time. With 4SIGHT you are acutely equipped to keep track of all your assets.
One 4SIGHT customer, a large renowned U.S. retailer, used the reporting feature to establish that dock utilization rate was only 30 percent. After putting the data to use for them, this customer was able to increase dock usage to 66 percent, which means they are becoming more efficient with their dock door assets and gaining capability to reduce labor costs, trailer and personnel idle time, fuel consumption, detention charges, security or environmental breaches and maintenance.
According to Eric Breen, 4SIGHT Systems Manager, “4SIGHT’s Management System’s main focus is to provide real-time data that no other yard and dock management system can provide to fill in the gaps, creating a complete picture that allows your logistics professionals to make the best decisions to optimize operations.”
4SIGHT is a tool that can be used for practical business advantage. It puts the know-how in your hands so you can increase visibility, productivity and sustainability.

Is sustainability a hot trending topic that is soon to be forgotten? If sustainability were merely a ‘hot trending topic’ or a current buzzword, at this stage it would be well toasted. No, the forces of sustainability or resource scarcity are not going anywhere. It is a product of our ever-evolving society. Globally, businesses in industries ranging from technology to manufacturing are embracing sustainability as a core objective. If you have a sustainability initiative in place or you are considering developing one, your best bet is to start at the onset of your business activity. In the realm of manufacturing, this is most likely the loading dock and dock sustainability. A sustainable loading dock makes for a sustainable business.
Starting in 2010, MIT Sloan Management Review and The Boston Consulting Group began to document and examine the measures various companies were taking in regards to sustainability. Recently in an article in the MIT Sloan Management Review, sustainability was coined as a permanent element of many company agendas. Also stating, many of these companies are enjoying a profit as a direct result of sustainability efforts.
A sustainable loading dock? I don’t want to change.
Unfortunately, there are still skeptics and resistance to sustainability. If you work in an environment where people are hesitant to change and aren’t inclined to quickly adopt sustainable practices, there is hope. At the loading dock you can easily address each piece of equipment at a time. From a loading dock leveler to loading dock lights, there are numerous ways to increase your green efforts, all at different cost levels. Work to evaluate which green initiatives should be pursued.
A sustainable loading dock? It costs too much.
If cost is a constraining factor for you, start off with minimal changes that don’t require much investment to implement. For example, change your dock lighting. If you switch your dock lights to LED, you will save money on energy consumption. You will also benefit from the longer lamp life offered by LED. In fact, LED lights provide thousands of hours of illumination and save considerable maintenance time and money spent on replacing bulbs. Have a look at the APS E-Saver™ LED Replacement Lamp. This lamp will save significant amounts of energy. It has been designed with LED optics and it shines maximum illumination throughout the truck trailer.
A sustainable loading dock? My doors aren’t broken.
Despite the abundance of information, surveys, tests and studies that clearly identify sustainability as a means of generating profit, some people are still not convinced. When a piece of equipment is working and you have no visible issues with it, why change it? This is a pretty reasonable argument, particularly when it comes to an expensive capital investment. The answer boils down to this, change it if the change will save energy, save long-term costs, increase sustainability and lower the overall lifetime cost of the product.
TKO Dock Door specialists have the tools to show you just how much energy is flowing through gaps and openings at your dock doors. Openings can be a result of dock door damage. Forklifts constantly moving product often impact and damage the door or the door track. In a perfect world, if a door receives an impact and is damaged, it would be taken care of immediately. The reality is that in many cases the door may still partially function and so work goes on. Workers don’t even realize the amount of energy that is seeping out just like money down the drain.
Impactable dock doors such as the TKO WelterWeight® act as the first line of defense against the occasional bump or the TKO CruiserWeight® for the most severe collision.
Rather than becoming damaged from the force of a major hit, on an impactable dock door the panels release. By pulling on two handles you can easily set the door back in place. Fully impactable models also have the door seal attached to the door panel rather than the doorframe. The door can be raised with the seal out of harm’s way, maintaining a consistent seal.
A sustainable loading dock? I don’t need a new dock leveler.
Dock levelers bridge the gap between the trailer and the warehouse floor, they are vital to any distribution facility. Dock levelers are generally mounted in a concrete pit. The only problem with this design is the residing space between the pit style dock leveler and the pit wall. This opening exposes the facility to interior and exterior airflow exchange. The standard brush seal, simply put, doesn’t work. It does not stop the flow of air and therefore without an adequate seal energy loss is a guarantee.
ENERGY GUARD is a superior seal that runs along the sides and rear of the dock leveler to help prevent energy loss from air flow and contamination. The design closes off the gaps between the dock leveler and concrete pit that are often missed by traditional weather seals. As another feature, the weather seal fabric is not exposed to the face of the loading dock wall which keeps it out of harm’s way promoting long term durability. ENERGY GUARD can also be factory installed on new Kelley or Serco dock levelers.
A sustainable loading dock? It’s possible!
A sustainable and cost effective loading dock, by all accounts, is possible. You have at your disposal today many options to pursue for a greener future. From dock leveler seals, loading dock lighting to impactable dock doors, the solutions are there, waiting to reduce your carbon footprint, reduce loading dock energy usage and save on costs. Although the effects of refusing to adopt a sustainability program remain to be seen, the time has evidently arrived to let sustainability rock your world.
