The demand for home delivery service has been on the increase for several years, however with the recent pandemic this demand has seen a dramatic sharp rise.
Many retailers now opt for their own delivery service. After all, with your own delivery you have the opportunity to provide an additional service to your customers. That is, if it is done properly! A delay, incorrect delivery or damaged goods may quickly lead to dissatisfied customers
Your logistics process must be in top condition to provide the best service.

With a Loading Systems Van-dock leveller you save your employees from potential injury by removing the dangerous heavy lifting duties. It also serves to loading the vehicle more efficiently.
It works as follows: the delivery vehicle parks at the loading bay with the doors still closed, the doors are opened and the Van-dock leveller is easily positioned in the vehicle with the control panel. The vehicle can then be safely loaded.
The Van-dock leveller is easily adjustable to the requirements of your loading bay. A superstructure with an overhead door and dock shelter is also possible. Our specialists are happy to help you find the best solution for your loading bays.
A separate loading platform for small vans and traditional trucks is not always possible or the best solution. In that case, our combi-dock leveller offers the perfect solution. It has a segmented lip and dynamic capacity, so that the leveller also fits in a van without overloading it. As a result, this leveller can be used for both vans and trucks at the same loading bay.
The combi-dock leveller therefore offers you the convenience, safety and efficiency of a loading bay for vans, but combined with your traditional loading bay for trucks.
When your needs change, Loading Systems changes with you. A dock leveller from Loading Systems is an indispensable step towards a professional and optimal delivery solution to your customers. Take your loading process to the next level with our Van-dock leveller or Combi-dock leveller.
