A trailer support for busy loading docks

By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey |

The Ground Mounted Trailer Support (GMTS; photo) is a new hands-free trailer-support system. The new support is permanently positioned in the trailer docking area in its retracted state. When a trailer has been docked and secured, the GMTS can be activated from inside the loading dock area, rising to support the trailer from below, during loading/offloading. The GMTS is built for the busy dock environment where a worker in the yard would be at risk from dock traffic. Unlike most trailer support options, the GMTS is not manually deployed by a dockworker, but is operated safely from inside the dock area, eliminating risk and saving time. — Ideal Warehouse Innovations, Inc., Toronto, Ont., Canada
