Van docking ramps

Published:  13 September, 2019

Supporting the increasing trend for logistics companies to make next or even same day deliveries with smaller vans, Ian Langan, technical director at loading bay specialist THORWORLD INDUSTRIES, advises on the benefits of van docking ramps as an ideal means to improve loading function, and enable the speedy, safe dispatch of smaller delivery vehicles:

“The UK delivery industry is constantly evolving. As lead times become tighter and higher customer expectations for home delivery become commonplace, changes are needed to realise what is becoming a new distribution norm. Increasingly, we’re seeing logistics companies adapt existing working practices and bolster lorry or container fleets with smaller, more responsive transit vehicles as an alternative to, or in conjunction with articulated lorries.”   Click here for the full release.
