Truck & Vehicle Restraints for Loading Docks
Lenworth’s reliable truck & vehicle restraints prevent trailer creep and early departure.
Lenworth Truck Restraints contribute to facility and employee safety by holding trucks in place during the loading and unloading process. Loading dock area incidents generally result in two key issues – trailer creep and early departure.
To learn more about how truck restraints can prevent these issues, see our article on 4 Ways Truck Restraints Can Prevent Injury & Damage.
What is ‘trailer creep’ & ‘early departure’?
Trailer creep occurs when a truck slowly moves away from the loading dock as a result of traffic in and out of the truck. It can often be a very gradual process that is easy to miss in a busy, time-sensitive environment.
Early departure is a simple human error wherein the driver exits the dock area too soon. This can lead to loss of product, damage to the truck and/or dock and potentially even injure employees.
Both of these serious issues (and others) can be avoided with the simple installation of truck restraints that secure the truck to the dock leveller during the loading & unloading process.
