Mobile loading dock ramp usually serves as the bridge between forklift and container, so it’s also called container loading dock ramp or simply container ramp. But this post aims to introduce a special loading dock ramp we customized recently for a UAE customer. It’s not a common “container” ramp, but an “airplane” ramp. It mainly covers details as below:
- Demand determination of customized mobile loading dock ramp
- Demand analysis of the “airplane” mobile loading dock ramp
- The solution to the “airplane” mobile loading dock ramp
Demand determination of customized mobile loading dock ramp
This customer elaborated on his need that his business involved transporting goods and supplies with the airplane, for which he intended to choose an “airplane” ramp to help load and offload goods to the airplane. He also found several other container loading dock ramp suppliers who failed to meet his needs and decided to cooperate with us after browsing our product website and communicating with our technical sales.
Based on 18 years of manufacturing experience and thousands of end-users’ support, we have the confidence to manufacture a special-sized loading dock ramp for airplane use. Standardized manufacturing is always our strength, yet customization service is proof that we work for every customer’s needs.
Demand analysis of the “airplane” mobile loading dock ramp
And we confirmed the parameters of the hydraulic forklift ramp with this UAE customer who required the ramp is 6m wide to match the gate width of the airplane. Although the size is double or triple of the common ramp width, there is nothing difficult for our technical designers and manufacturing workers.
The solution to the “airplane” mobile loading dock ramp
Double hydraulic systems were adopted to provide sufficient lifting power; 4 parallel solid tires were installed to help the ramp move flexibly; 4 strong supporting legs to offer stable support for the ramp during loading and offloading work; the grid anti-skid platform was welded with three parts of reinforced hard steel plates. Its great load capacity and wide ramp platform can allow 3 forklifts to work simultaneously, highly efficient and fast.
The supporting legs and leading board can be retracted when moving or storing this big ramp. Force analysis and quality tests have been implemented in our factory to ensure the workplace safety of the user. Convenience, safety and work efficiency are the reason why customers choose our mobile loading dock ramp.
