In a loading dock, one problem to overcome is the problem of bridging the gap between a truck and the dock or warehouse floor. Not all trucks are the same height, and the height of the trailer floor within a truck can vary according to how heavily the truck is laden. Thus, there is not only a gap to bridge but a height difference to overcome. Various devices are employed in order to achieve this: dock plates, dock levellers, dock boards, and various forms of lift. These devices vary in construction, suitability to dock conditions, cost of installation, and loading capacity.
Dock levellers and lifts are generally permanent fixtures at each door of a dock.
