Hörmann has spent several years developing technology that allows an RFID reader to be fitted in a secure, protected location underneath a dock leveller. The challenge has been to develop a steel leveller that allows the radio signal to pass through, without compromising product stability or longevity.

There is no need to equip an entire fleet of trucks nor to limit unloading of vehicles to specific equipment.
