In recent years, the number of online sales has increased enormously. The ever-growing rise of e-commerce is causing many changes in the logistics landscape. This creates an increasing need for small-scale distribution centres on the outskirts of the city. In this way, the physical distance from a shipment to the end customer is reduced. In addition, there is a shift from large pallet shipments to smaller packages. This creates a greater variety of vehicles which have to dock at the loading docks.

New in our product range: the Van-Dock Shelter

Due to the increasing use of smaller trucks and vans, we have specially designed a cushion shelter to make loading and unloading easier for these vehicles. The shelter has a unique design to seal the space between the building and vans. For example, the sides of the vans normally slope upwards. To ensure a seamless seal, the van shelter cushions are beveled from top to bottom. This makes it possible for drivers to reverse safely with the doors open
