    When transfering goods from a dock to a truck, a wide and heavy-duty loading dock plate can ensure safe and quick transfer of gods. Dock plates rest between the loading dock and the truck to create a platform that goods can be rolled or carried across. Carrying capacity is a major factor, and the range varies greatly from around 700 to 20,000 lb. capacity. There’s no need to spend more on a high capacity dock that won’t be used to its fullest, but the extra capacity may provide peace-of-mind. A dock plate should be about 2’ wider than the widest items you plan to transport.
