Loading Dock Levelers & Lifts

What is a Loading Dock Leveler?

A loading dock leveler acts as a bridge to safely allow the transfer of goods from a semi-trailer, truck or rail car to the building and vice-versa.  The height differences between the truck and the building, the type of goods handled, and the material handling equipment used are a few of the factors that can determine which dock leveler is best for your application.  Due to this  diversity, we offer many types of dock levelers to fit a wide variety of applications.
