Proptech Helps Development Do More With Less Dock Space


One of the challenges posed by urban developments is how to do more, with less dock space.

A balance needs to be struck between the competing requirements of maximising gross lettable space, managing an increasing number of deliveries and related traffic congestion, while at the same time improving site amenity for all users.

MobileDOCK provides a solution with an efficient, automated and controlled process of connecting the site with its community of tenants and their suppliers, carriers and drivers.

This Australian-developed property technology has been delivering benefits to a range of urban developments for more than a decade, with clients including Barangaroo, Westfield, ICC, David Jones, Emporium, Melbourne’s 80 Collins Street and Collins Arch, Auckland’s Commercial Bay and Msheireb Downtown Doha in Qatar.

MobileDOCK provides the same benefits that air traffic control provides an airport, allowing the site to configure specific rules that determine and control which transport carriers, drivers or contractors have access to the site, at what times, and for how long

With a focus on the sites community and the flexibility to determine and configure rules that are specifically suited to its requirements, MobileDOCK can provide benefits to every site.
