Dock Boards Ask An Expert Request a Quote Request Service Or give us a call: 1-888-606-9415 Dock Boards are light-duty portable plates used to load and unload freight at a loading dock. They bridge the gap between the truck trailer and the dock floor, thereby minimizing accidents and equipment damage. Often called dock plates, dock boards are a cost-effective solution if your facility doesn’t have a pit mounted dock leveler or an edge of dock leveler. Their main advantage lies in their flexibility—not only are they easy to transport, but they can be used in a variety of settings and contexts. Dock boards are a great choice if you want a quick, affordable, and reliable loading dock solution.
