In order to facilitate material handling, loading docks may be equipped with the following dock equipment:

  • Bumpers – protect the dock from truck damage, may also be used as a guide by the truck driver when backing up.
  • Dock leveler – a height-adjustable platform used as a bridge between dock and truck, can be operated via mechanical (spring), hydraulic, or air powered systems.
  • Dock lift – serves the same function as a leveler but operates similarly to a scissor lift to allow for greater height adjustments.
  • Dock seals – compressible foam blocks against which the truck presses when parked; seals are used at exterior truck bays in colder climates where this will provide protection from the weather.
  • Truck or vehicle restraint system (dock lock) – a strong metal hook mounted to the base of the dock which will hook to the frame or bumper of a trailer and prevents it from rolling away during loading operations, can be operated via manual, hydraulic, or electrical systems; this system can replace or work in conjunction with wheel chocks.
