Prevent Unscheduled Truck Departure with Salvo

What is SALVO?

Salvo is a unique loading dock safety system that interlocks the vehicle's own braking system with the dock door, ensuring that a trailer cannot depart until loading has finished with the dock door locked closed.

How does SALVO work?

  1. Vehicle arrives and the heavy duty stainless steel/aluminum SGL lock is applied to the trailer brake line.
  2. The heavy duty key can only be removed from the SGL once it is locked on the trailer.
  3. The uniquely coded key is used to unlock its assigned dock door.
  4. While the door is open, the key is trapped.
  5. Only once the loaders have finished loading/unloading and locked the door closed will the key be released.
  6. The released key is then taken to remove the SGL brake lock.
  7. Driver can safely depart.
