Thank you for taking time to evaluate the benefits and features of Dock Watch, an innovative Loading Dock monitoring and communication system.

I would like to introduce you to Dock Watch, LLC; a manufacturing company providing a new innovative Electronic Loading Dock Monitoring System. Our company Dock Watch, LLC is located in Bartlett, Tennessee a suburb of Memphis, Tennessee.

I have had over 30 years experience in the Materials Handling Industry, including equipment sales, and as a regional manager for a manufacturer of loading dock equipment. For the past 24 years I have owned and operated Shephard’s Industrial Training Systems, Inc. a safety consulting firm designed to assist industries in providing comprehensive safety audits and employee safety training programs. (shephardsystems.com) My firm has provided consulting services targeting material handling operations for all types of industries across North America.

Due to an incident at a client’s loading dock, I was asked for my recommendations to improve safety and employee awareness at their loading docks. I then realized the need for a monitoring system such as Dock Watch. Dock Watch was initially invented as a safety device for powered industrial truck operators to warn them of trailer creep, a potentially dangerous situation. During
the two and half (2 ½) years of research, design, and testing we discovered in addition to trailer creep, we could supply critical information to warehouse management.Recently, one of the leading loading dock manufacturers stated, “Dock Watch has closed the gap in loading dock safety.”

We know you will also find value in this innovative loading dock monitoring device and communication system. Dock Watch will assist you in improving employee safety and awareness at your loading docks. Please click on our products page now to begin.
