bulk transport rail car unloadingTime is money, and delays in rail car unloading can have a significant impact on the overall operation. Truck drivers need to be able to pull into the loading station, load as fast as possible, and get out on time to stay on schedule for delivery. Versatility is key to operating a safe and efficient bulk loading station. Equipment must be easy to use, well maintained, and properly designed to accommodate most truck types. This typically consists of a stationary platform with stairs, an access gangway or bridge, and a safety cage for fall protection. In addition, it is critical that operators know how to use the equipment for rail car unloading properly. Thus, adequate training must be part of the overall solution for each site.

The varying heights of the trucks can pose a serious fall hazard if the safety bridge is not sized properly. Trucks are large and drivers are under pressure to quickly get in and out. Correctly spotting dry bulk trucks at each station is critical for the safety and efficiency of the loading and unloading operation. A properly designed dry bulk rail car unloading station and maintaining operator safety improves efficiency and prevents accidents, ensuring continuous operations with no downtime.
