In response to ever-growing demand for automated shipping, Loading Automation, Inc. introduces the ATLS (Automatic Truck Loading System), the world’s first fully automated system designed for installation on a regular shipping dock, allowing regular, non-modified trailers to be loaded with pallets, slip-sheets, racks and other types of unit loads.
The global automated truck loading system (ATLS) market is segmented on the basis of loading dock, system type, industry, and by region.
On the basis of loading dock, the global market is classified into Flush dock, Enclosed dock, Saw tooth dock. The market for saw tooth dock in the global ATLS market is expected to grow gradually with maximum market share between 2014 and 2025. The major drivers contributing to this growth include increasing the adoption of saw tooth-designed loading docks for efficient loading and unloading processes. These saw tooth docks are applied where the dock space needs to be reduced. In this dock design, the truck requires less space as it is already lined up in the drive-way direction. Hence, these docks are utilized in industries where there is a space constraint for loading and unloading operations.
Flush loading docks are projected to hold the largest size during the forecast period from 2014 to 2025. Some of the major reasons for this growth include the general acceptance of the flush dock design by various industries such as automotive, warehouse & distribution, pharmaceuticals, FMCG, and paper among others. The flush dock is a closed dock. Due to this closed system, it protects the goods from harsh temperatures throughout the process of loading and unloading. Thus, it is one of the most widely adopted dock designs.
