Hörmann UK launches new Dock Seal BBS for small transport vehicles

Hörmann UK is supporting the logistics industry in successfully managing the increase in E-Commerce parcel volumes (a growth of 9%[i]add info on servicingin order to create a seamless connection between the vehclea and the warehouse.are suited to the vehicle siannually), with the development of its new BBS Dock Seal.

As online shopping continues to dominate the retail sector, it has become vital for supply chain operations to also facilitate the “last mile” journey for same day or next day delivery. This subsequently creates additional issues relating to the nature of warehouse design, as logistic companies must specify suitable solutions that meet the requirements of the widest range of delivery vehicle types.

Hörmann UK’s new BBS Dock Seal supports clients in creating multi-faceted delivery hubs that incorporate a range of technologies for the loading and unloading of smaller transport vehicles.

The new dock seal can safely accommodate smaller commercial vehicles, such as the Mercedes Sprinter van, as it features a foam-filled cushion that creates a seamless connection between the vehicle and the warehouse. This supports enhanced temperature control and the safe movement of goods for increased efficiency.

For enhanced usability, Hörmann recommends the use of its BBS Dock seal with longer dock levellers that feature telescopic lips to provide greater flexibility in order to meet the changing demands of the fleet vehicles being used.

The BBS Dock Seal is also supported by a superior aftersales offering of a 12-month warranty, which is backed up by Hörmann UK’s nationwide network of service engineers. The team are available in the shortest lead times to minimise any potential downtime in the potential event of a fault or damage.
