Cold Chain compliant loading zone improves refrigerated logistics

Safetech delivered Nolan Meats a Cold Chain compliant loading dock system which allows refrigerated vehicles to reverse into the loading zone with closed cargo doors. Unlike conventional loading docks with inflatable seals which require the driver to open truck doors before reversing into the loading zone, Safetech’s igloo system allows trucks to move into position with doors still closed. An inflatable shelter is activated, a seal is created against the trucks’ body and a temperature controlled zone is created. Finally, the doors to the refrigerated truck and facility can be opened and the dock leveller can be set in place. 

Refrigerated temperatures are maintained, efficiency increases assured.

Creating a system which allows transport vehicles to dock before opening cargo doors delivers integrity to the storage and loading component of Nolan’s temperature controlled supply chain. Ensuring chilled air does not escape unnecessarily means low temperature ranges are maintained and running costs reduced. When loading is complete the dock leveller is stowed, the vehicle doors can be closed and the shelter can be deflated. This process maintains both the temperature inside the building and vehicle, and prevents external elements from entering the controlled environment.

Traffic management and driver safety improves in the loading zone

In the busy loading zone drivers no longer need to leave the wheel. Allowing trucks to reverse into position before opening cargo doors reduces the risk of contact or collision between other vehicles and personnel.  Trucks can move efficiently into and away from the loading zone and as a result loading turn around times are improved. For Nolan’s, this represents improved outcomes in a number of areas. Refrigerated temperatures are maintained, drivers and other personnel are safer and loading is more efficient. The cold chain is unbroken and a cold chain compliant system logistics system is assured.
