4 Great Uses for Portable Loading Ramps

While the function of a portable loading ramp will be similar regardless of the application, many different industries can benefit from them. Some common loading ramp applications include:

1. Warehousing

Loading ramps are frequently used in warehouses and storage facilities. Warehouses are constantly moving and receiving new goods, but some of these facilities do not have loading bays. A loading ramp makes it much easier to unload a truck full of fresh stock because a forklift can drive straight into the truck, retrieve the palletized goods, and transport it back into the facility with ease.

2. Train Yards

Railcar loading operations require specific equipment to get the job done right and safely. Some types of loading docks are specifically manufactured to connect easily with train cars while allowing for additional platform space. With the right options, multiple train cars can be unloaded at the same time while using a single ramp, giving a major boost to productivity without compromising safety.

3. Shipping Yards

Most loading ramp styles and configurations can be used in outdoor settings, making them a popular choice for shipping yards. Whether you are looking for a mobile unit with wheels or a high-capacity model, portable loading ramps make loading and unloading trucks and containers a much easier task. Many types of loading ramps can also be easily stored when they are not in use, allowing you to free up valuable space for other important tasks.

4. Industrial Manufacturing

Industrial manufacturing facilities need to transport a variety of heavy materials, equipment, and other items to assemble their products. A high-capacity loading ramp allows these facilities to safely handle the heaviest materials in any setting, minimizing the risk of an accident and ensuring that production stays on schedule.
