Tru-Dock Loading Pods at Ashburton Processing Facility

Tru-Dock™ Loading Pods provide the ideal system for improving loadout productivity, controlling the environment between the storage area and shipping container, and ensuring top-level biosecurity protection during the loading process. 

For this particular project we supplied a custom-made combination of our standard loading pod variations, providing a semi-automated version with selected components. These pods incorporate an insulated moving pod with manual push-out operation, a simple PVC dock shelter to provide weather protection and environmental control, and a hydraulic vertically-stored dock leveller.

Four pods are in operation at this busy processing and distribution centre, keeping the flow of fresh and frozen goods moving continuously.

According to requirements and budget, the manual operation can be automated by full upgrade to the Tru-Dock™ Automatic Loading Pod, which includes an electronic control system with HMI touch screen contoller; the moving pod, hydraulic loading ramp and an inflatable dock seal are powered by a single-phase, 230V motor.
