Dock Upgrade for Local Grocer
A local grocery chain had a huge problem: their location in Granite City, Illinois, had a loading dock which was unsafe. In order to unload trucks at their dock, they had to use portable plates and dangerous devices. Bi-State has a 33 year history of working with the grocer so they turned to us once they determined it was time to address the issue.
After reviewing their current process, Bi-State recommended to renovate the dilapidated dock and repair the damaged concrete. The grocer installed a brand new edge of dock leveler – a Kelley KM-6620 with 20,000 lb. capacity. The mechanical dock leveler is fully automatic and it is counter balanced for ease of use in bridging the gap between the truck and the dock. This new dock plate brings the dock back to a safe environment for workers.
