Dwell time is a major operational problem that most managers intuitively recognize, but they often lack visibility into the total impact it has on overall warehouse operations. Aimed primarily at high turnover, resource-limited warehouses and distribution centers, SmartDock™ provides real-time insight into the current state of a loading dock, measures efficiency, and creates visual records of key activity. With SmartDock™, facilities can quantify the impact of dwell time on their business, get insight into the origin for corrective action and enable smarter decision making.
The SmartDock™ solution leverages Locix’s patented HD Vision Sensor platform to cost-effectively collect visual and sensor data from the loading dock’s interior and exterior without the extensive installation and high infrastructure costs of competing solutions. Combining this unique data with cloud-based, state of the art machine learning and data analytics, SmartDock™ provides unprecedented, real-time visibility into dock status and generates alerts and reporting around the specific causes of increased dwell time and dock level inefficiency.
