As part of our commitment to safety and customer service, Air Canada Cargo's Toronto team is pleased to announce the installation of a new locking system at our bay doors.
The Blue Giant StrongArm™ TL85 applies restraining force to prevent trailer creep, unscheduled departures, and other hazards caused by trailer movement.
Installation has now been completed. All drivers must be aware of the following information and comply with the instructions below.
Please forward these instructions to all third-party trucking companies currently retrieving or delivering freight on your behalf.
Doors with the StrongArm™ system in place are equipped with an exterior red/green traffic light.
For your convenience, our staff has been trained and will operate the dock doors and restraint system on your behalf. Please take note of the following:
- When the light is green, safely reverse into position against the dock leveler bumpers.
The light turns red when the locking mechanism is engaged. Once the light is red, you can no longer move the vehicle as the restraint is hooked to the bumper of the trailer.
- When unloading is complete, our operators disengage the vehicle restraint and the exterior light turns green once again. It is now safe to pull away from the dock.
If your truck does not have a functioning ICC bar, please continue to use the wheel chocks to prevent truck movement.
Safety is our top priority, for you and our employees. Please comply with the above instructions, and speak to one of our staff members at the loading dock if you have any questions.
