Having the right loading ramp for a facility’s needs can make all the difference in the world when it comes to efficiency. If you have a business that frequently loads or unloads semi trucks and you do not have a built-in loading bay or if you need extra loading capabilities in your shipping yard, it is worth looking into portable semi loading docks. At Dura Ramp, we design and manufacture a massive variety of types of loading ramps, including systems that are ideal for loading and unloading semi trailers.
Loading ramps can be custom made to work well with many different types of vehicles and one of the most common uses of these ramps is to load and unload semi trucks. Some loading dock systems are stationary and, while this often allows these ramps to have a higher weight capacity and more space for forklifts to maneuver, it can pose a problem for facilities that are tight on space in their shipping area. For this reason, portable loading ramps are an excellent tool for many companies with warehouses or shipping yards.
Portable loading docks can offer a lot of great benefits for facilities dealing with semi trucks. Some of these benefits include:
If your facility does not currently have a way to allow forklifts to drive directly into a semi trailer, a portable loading ramp can greatly improve your efficiency. Being able to quickly drive in and out of a truck to move pallets of cargo can increase the number of trucks that you are able to load or unload in a set amount of time.
For many shipping areas, floor space is a very limited commodity. Regular loading ramps take up space that is often needed for other operations. Portable loading ramps can be brought out whenever they are needed and stored neatly when they are not.
Portable forklift ramps for semi trailers can make it much easier to load and unload cargo, as you are able to maneuver them into place behind a trailer, eliminating much of the need for drivers to back up semi trucks at the perfect angle in order to meet a loading platform.
