So, what makes up a Loading Bay?

The first thing your suppliers or couriers will see when approaching your Loading Bay is your dock shelter. Dock Shelters need to be durable, weatherproof, and most importantly secure; all to protect your supplies. These will need to be the right size for vehicles of different sizes, so you don’t affect the building.

To further vehicle support, Dock Levellers are essential for getting the supplies into the vehicle and need to be versatile. The ideal solution is a swing lip leveller, for standard-size vehicles, and a telescopic lip leveller for when the greater range is required.
