Applied Handling has a customer who wanted to utilize empty building space for new docks but didn’t want the various costs that are associated with digging a truck well. They needed to service full-size over-the-road trailers at one dock and company delivery vehicles at the other dock.
Applied Handling was able to give them exactly what they wanted. We poured a level dock approach, cut two door openings in the building wall and installed insulated sectional overhead doors and grade level dock shelters. The doors and shelters not only keep the elements out of the facility and keep the employees comfortable and dry, but they also provide high energy savings. For the trailer dock, we installed a ground stored scissor lift which can be lifted to trailer height and lowered again to ground level.
