Yard ramp

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

A yard ramp, sometimes called a mobile yard ramp, is a movable metal ramp for loading and unloading of vehicles. A yard ramp is placed at the back of a vehicle to provide access for forklifts to ascend the ramp. Using a yard ramp for vehicle loading or unloading allows the work to be carried out by a forklift.[1] Yard ramps have been criticised as leading to "low productivity, higher investment, and limited flexibility" in buildings that already have docking bays.[2]
