ITz Yard Ramp F.A.Q . (Frequently Asked Questions)
What is a Yard Ramp?
A yard ramp is a large ramp made of steel or aluminum that can support a forklift as it moves materials from one level to another, usually from the ground to a truck trailer or vice versa. They’re most commonly used at shipping warehouses and distribution centers to load and unload goods, but they’re fit for use in any industrial yard.
How do I use a Yard Ramp?
A yard ramp is highly portable, so they can be used in a variety of different ways. Most businesses use them as portable loading bays, especially if their shipping facilities don’t have a loading bay of their own. The ramp can be positioned easily to meet an incoming shipment and still be sturdy enough to support a fully-loaded forklift going up and down its surface.
What Industries Use Yard Ramps?
Virtually every industry that needs to move materials uses yard ramps for loading and unloading. Shipping warehouses most frequently use yard ramps as surplus loading bays for when their facilities are full, but there are a number of commercial applications. They’re a very common choice for business whose facilities lack a docking bay of their own.

How do I ship a Yard Ramp?
