The Dock Management System, designed to prevent the premature departure of vehicles from the loading bay, is set to be installed at every one of Tescos' distribution centres across the UK. The system, developed by Eas
The system, developed by Easilift Loading Systems and Traka, works by clipping the driver's keys to an iFob which is then inserted into the main Traka control panel, allowing a corresponding iFob to be removed and handed to the driver, only then is it possible to open the bay door.
Once loading or unloading is complete, the operative closes the door. This sends a message to the Goods In control box, permitting the removal of the drivers keys but only after the deposit iFob is inserted back.
