Benefits of automated LoadForming

Improving the efficiency of the docks you have is far more cost-effective than adding more docks. Compared to typical loading dock operations, automated load forming reduces unnecessary labor and simplifies your loading processes.

Ensure continuity of material flow


Automation with LoadForming provides transparency and control in your dispatch operations, giving you full command of your material flow and a constant, reliable supply to your automated loading system.


Integrate into any upstream system

LoadForming can be connected with any upstream manufacturing or warehouse pallet flow, such as production line pallet conveyors, ASRSs, AGVs, forklifts, etc. Integration to any major ERP or WMS as well, or use as a standalone.

Prevent handling damage

Eliminate the repeated touchpoints common with forklift and manual handling and reduce product damage and contamination risks. Automatic LoadForming used with automatic loading keeps your products and unit loads intact and stable, and reduces delays caused by rework or replacement.

Improve work safety

With products, people and equipment all in one place, accidents can easily happen at a warehouse loading dock. Manual loading work increases this possibility even further. A fully-automated loading process eliminates the risk of injury, reduces workplace stress, and makes an otherwise complex, sometimes unpredictable environment much easier to manage.
