Truck turntables from the Australian Turntable Company are useful in eliminating the unnecessary dead space in loading docks required for multiple turns.
Other key benefits of truck turntables include:
- increased usable retail space due to reduced turning space requirement
- increased public safety, only forward truck movements in public areas
- compliance with Statutory Authorities D.A. conditions requiring heavy vehicles entering and leaving public thoroughfares
- access to more difficult sites, no need for a full flow through traffic management system
- reduced staffing requirements for traffic management within the loading dock
- increased capacity of the loading dock
- quicker loading and unloading times
- reduced fuel consumption required while unloading due to low speed maneuvering being eliminated
- reduced risk of damage to property through vehicle collision.
