NATION RAMPS PORTABLE LOADING DOCK RAMP DIVISION: IN THE FIELD WITH OCEAN TRAILER

On August 28, 2017  Category:  T-Lane Nation Case Studies

CASE STUDY: NATION RAMPS IS THE SOLUTION FOR OCEAN TRAILER

Nation Ramps recently had the pleasure of working with Ocean Trailer to find a ramp solution for immediate delivery. The Nation Ramp Team met with the people at Ocean Trailer to go over all product details and shipping needs.

Details:

Ocean Trailer came to Nation Ramps with the issue of having to load tractor trailers without a functional Loading Dock Door. Nation Ramp’s analyzed their specific requirements and came up with the following solution:

Project Specifications:
Model: GTD30k-27×120-S and SAP30k-08×120-48A
Ramp Length 26.5 Feet
Platform Length 8 Feet
Ramp and Platform Width 120 Inches
Ramp Usable Width 115 Inches
Ramp Capacity 30,000 lbs (GVW)
Ramp Height Adjustable 37″ to 60″
12″ Safety Rub Rails

We had the required solution in stock and shipped the ramp for immediate delivery to Ocean Trailer’s yard in Winnipeg, MB. Within days our Ramp & Platform solution was in place and solving their tractor trailer loading problem.

A week after installation we followed up with Ocean Trailer to determine how our product was performing for them. Their yard manager was excited about the time he was saving each day. What previously took hours, involved three employees and a pallet jack; now only required minutes, one employee and a forklift to load a reefer. A small capital investment in our portable ramp and platform solution saved Ocean Trailer in wages and time; making their team more efficient and ensuring their customers receive the best service.
