Tesco's flagship grocery distribution centre in Daventry is the first in the country to be designed and built with Easilift Loading Systems' and Traka's Dock Management System (DMS) hi-tech reporting and safety solution
Tesco has committed to installing the system, which is designed to prevent the premature departure of vehicles from the loading bay, at the Goods In section of all new Tesco distribution centres across the UK.
Easilift believes that integrating the DMS 'from birth' brings significant cost savings alongside sizable operational advantages.
"The Dock Management System can be retro-fitted to existing warehouses, but of course there are benefits to incorporating it at the design/build stage," explains Rob Fay, MD of Easilift Loading Systems.
"Control panels and cabling become integral with the bay design, and we have been able to be much more dynamic in the layout of loading bays because of the confidence that the DMS brings to safety."
