The loading/receiving dock is a critical component of the Material Transfer Zone (MTZ). A smooth-flowing MTZ lets companies avoid delays, minimize accidents, prevent product damage, meet schedules—and ultimately, satisfy customers. This ideal MTZ can only exist, however, if the loading dock is properly designed and maintained. The MTZ covers a broad range of concerns including: dock positioning and design, trailer design, load configuration, dock equipment systems, and the interaction between material handling vehicles and product shipments.

With effective loading dock processes, companies can realize significant gains in productivity, energy efficiency, and safety, while cutting costs.
