Protecting high-traffic dock doors is not a task that should ever be taken lightly. These doors are not only extremely expensive to repair, but can drastically slow or halt productivity, causing an even greater loss.
According to a recent article in Modern Materials Handling, a warehouse manager of an operation with nearly 50 dock doors stated that a single inoperable door could cost 30% of shipping capacity. One might assume that for a refrigerated warehouse with 47 high-speed loading doors, losing only one wouldn’t be detrimental. As you can see, that assumption is incorrect.
It only takes a forklift or any other vehicle one hit to cause the kind of damage that rips a gaping hole in your budget. Are you willing to take that kind of chance? Regardless of how stringent your safety protocol might be, accidents happen all the time.
