The Material Handling Institute, the nation’s largest material handling, logistics, and supply chain association, has named Quarion Technology’s innovative DokSAFE™ as one of the finalists for its Best New Product category of the 2020 MHI Innovation Awards. DokSAFE™ is a remote tracking and control safety system for forklifts operating in loading dock areas. Finalists for the award will make an in-booth presentation to a panel of judges during the MODEX 2020 trade show in Atlanta, Georgia. The award winners will be announced on March 11th during the MHI Industry Night gala held at the Thomas Murphy Ballroom.
The MHI selected Quarion’s DokSAFE™ as a best new product due to its trailblazing use of Ultra-Wideband real-time location technology, coupled with electronic vehicle controls. The result is a world-class safety product that can remotely stop a forklift from entering an unsafe trailer. Premature trailer separation from loading docks account for nearly 1,400 serious injuries per year in the U.S. DokSAFE™ is the product to eliminate those injures. By using the location and direction of the forklift, as well as monitoring the status of the trailer restraint system, DokSAFE™ transmits a stop signal to disable the forklift before it enters an unrestrained trailer at the loading dock. This dramatically changes the options available for loading dock operators, who heretofore have only had lights, signs and physical barriers to prevent accidents.
