Dock Communication

A dock communication system is critical for loading docks whether your facility is large or small. The operation of loading and unloading trucks makes the loading dock one of the most dangerous areas in any business or warehouse. Clear communication between the truck drivers and loading dock personnel significantly reduces the risk of accidents and injuries to employees. In addition, dock communication also decreases potential damage to trucks and loading dock equipment.

By providing a synchronized signal that is clearly understood by both the truck driver and the dock personnel, the NORDOCK® communication system will increase safety and productivity. The Red and Green LED lights clearly indicate to both the drivers and the loading dock staff whether the trailer is in the process of being loading or unloaded. Once the operation is complete, the green light signals the drivers that it is safe for them to depart.
