When Is It Time To Replace Your Loading System?

Dura-Ramp PRODeciding when to make improvements to your businesses operations can be a difficult task. Investing time and money into making logistical changes should result in improved efficiency or a cost savings. So if you have loading system that you think is ready for retirement, this list should help you determine if it has out lived its functional usefulness.

Damage to the structure: If your loading bay is beginning to crumble, crack, or bend it could be structurally compromised. Another heavy load could cause major damage to products and could become a workplace safety risk.

Inefficient loading methods: Your shipping and receiving process should be as streamlined as possible. If your loading system is holding up improvements in the system as a whole, then you have a problem.

Lack of space: Naturally businesses grow and need a larger space, but you may be stuck with the space you have. There are always more options to optimize the loading environment that you already are working with.

New equipment: If you have acquired a new piece of equipment that is not properly utilized by your current loading system, such as a forklift, then you want to ensure you are maximizing the effectiveness of this investment.

Change in shipping process: The ideal loading system should be able to accommodate changes in operations, such as the type of vehicle used to deliver the goods to the warehouse.

Increase in injuries: Your workers are your most important assets. If your current loading system is the cause for increased injuries in the workplace, it needs to be re-evaluated as soon as possible.
