Whether you are moving cargo from trucks, train cars, or storage containers, loading ramps for forklifts can make a job easier and faster. By allowing a forklift to directly access whatever vehicle is being loaded or unloaded, forklift ramps eliminate the need for awkward hand truck maneuvering or heavy lifting. At Dura-Ramp, we know how important it is for shipping and warehouse operations to run smoothly. This is why we offer a variety of custom and pre-engineered forklift ramps that are designed to increase productivity for any industry.
Different kinds of warehouse or shipping yard operations require different types of forklift loading ramps. Some of the types of loading ramps for forklifts sold by Dura-Ramp include:
If a loading ramp is going to have a forklift driving on it that is carrying a heavy load, it needs to be able to support the weight. All forklift loading ramps sold by Dura-Ramp are made of heavy-duty welded steel that can withstand repeated extreme use. Heavy-duty loading ramps for forklifts can come in a variety of widths and heights and they are compatible with the standard height for truck beds.
When a shipping or warehouse operation has limited space that requires flexibility, a portable forklift loading ramp may be the best option. Mobile loading ramps can be moved from location to location to accommodate large delivery vehicles or provide an adaptable workspace. Although they are lighter and more moveable than other forklift ramps, they are still able to support the heavy loads carried by forklifts.
Shipping operations that primarily deal with loading or unloading railcars are the perfect application for railcar loading ramps. Railcar loading ramps for forklifts typically boast larger decks and are optimized for the unloading of fully stocked railcars by having a forklift ramp design that is compatible with all boxcar door sizes.
Sometimes an operation requires customization in a forklift loading ramp to optimize efficiency. If a ramp needs to fit in a tight space or it rests on uneven ground, custom forklift loading ramps are an excellent solution.
