Reasons to Have Security Cameras Installed on Your Delivery Dock

August 16th, 2019



If you are finding yourself becoming increasingly frustrated with long loading times on your dock or you want to find better ways to make deliveries and other dock operations more efficient, then you should consider installing security cameras with motion sensor technology on your delivery dock.

You will get alerts each time a driver approaches the dock, and you can then review the footage to determine if you need to improve staffing, scheduling, or other operations to ensure a more efficient process.

Here are a few more reasons to have security cameras installed on your delivery dock:

Wait Time Control

If you receive regular complaints from drivers about the wait time, you will find that you are not only wasting time, but you are wasting money as well. With a motion-detecting security system in place at your loading dock, you can ensure that you are aware of when the drivers arrive, and you can make sure the process goes much more quickly and smoothly.

Delivery times will greatly improve, and the drivers won't be bleeding money due to the longer than anticipated waiting times. 

No Unauthorized Access

Security cameras can also help prevent unauthorized access. It becomes a significant liability if a driver has other people come onto the dock and help unload when they are not authorized to do so. It can also hurt waiting times and decrease your overall dock efficiency.

With this system, you and your staff will be alerted of trucks approaching the dock so you can help reduce the chances of unauthorized people entering the facility and working in the dock area.

Fix Staffing Issues

If you have been toying with the idea of hiring additional staff for the loading dock, having the security camera footage can help determine if and when the additional help is needed. You can review the truck wait times and then make any decisions that will improve efficiency,

Detecting Moving Objects

Finally, motion-sensing security systems for your dock will alert you of any moving objects in your docking area. This can help cut down on possible crime as well, including theft, vandalism, and trespassing and can maintain safety for everyone in the area.

If something does happen, you will also have the security camera footage to review to learn what happened, when it happened, and find ways it possibly could have been avoided to help future operations and improve safety measures.

When you decide to install a security system for your dock, make sure you have professionals that can ensure a custom and high-quality installation of all the equipment. They can also answer any questions you may have about your new system and walk you through how to use it.

Most systems also offer the best in current video compression standards, so you can have access to long-term storage for all of your security footage, so it is there for you to review, use to train, and use for compliance purposes.
