We decided to write a short list of actions before you decided to buy the ramp.
Of course, now on the market many suppliers of warehouse equipment and it is not a problem to buy a loading ramp, but the goal is not in the purchase.
You need to ensure that it fulfill the planned work for optimizing the loading and unloading procedures. The effect the buying ramp must exceed the cost of its purchase.
Thus, the most basic principles:
1. The loading on the ramp. You should buy the ramp for the existing warehouse equipment, or which will be used in the future. Meaning, before you buy a ramp, calculate total sum of weights of your heaviest forklift, its maximum load capacity and add 500 kg more. The loading on the ramp will be a main parameter in order to buy a ramp.
2. Type of equipment used. Also, before buying the ramp, find out what loader or other equipment will ride on the ramp. You can buy a short ramp, but it will be difficult to drive electric forklift, although diesel truck climbs on it without serious efforts.
3. Freight traffic. We strongly recommend you to buy a ramp, if you have enough intensive traffic or unloading without ramp take a lot of time and efforts (tent opening, freight moving inside truck using hydraulic carts, etc.). If you have these conditions, we really recommend you to buy a ramp, because it will save you time and money in the future.
