LODEM Group Releases Dock Planning 101

Wednesday, April 03, 2019

The Loading Dock Equipment Manufacturers (LODEM) Industry Group of MHI announces a newly released guide to dock planning. 
Dock Planning 101 assists users in the basic design of the loading dock and introduces the reader to fundamental concepts of dock design. A properly designed dock area can be a huge contributor in productivity or a complete bottleneck for material flow if not given the time it deserves. It is recommended you combine the information contained here with the help of a seasoned professional, which you can find in the LODEM group. 
The guide can be downloaded at http://www.mhi.org/free/36748
