loading docks

Why search it in Google? From the context the decribed scenario is obvious - floor level of the warehouse is 1.1 m above the level of the surrounding area, so the goods can be loaded and unloaded directly from trucks onto the floor level. This is done through loading docks, and in this context my suggested translation would be:
...enabling handling of goods directly to loading docks
