Case Study: Loading Dock Platform & Ramp - Dockzilla


This company leased a new grade-level building with no existing loading docks. For the building to be a viable option for their business, they needed two loading dock positions.

The architect and customer realized the expense, difficulty for trailers to maneuver and time required for conventional dock approach construction. They needed to explore another option.


After reviewing the site conditions with the customer, our salesman suggested an alternative to the standing loading dock construction with a 24’x32′ freestanding dock platform. This platform is large enough to turn and maneuver two loading dock positions. The docks were installed inside the building to maintain security, environment controlled and keep the trailers level.


Our sales rep was able to provide a turnkey solution to his customer without the need for a contractor or expensive loading dock excavation. The total cost of the project was less than original estimates just to build the exterior dock approach. The timeliness of this loading dock allowed the customer to begin operations on their schedule without delays caused during construction.

“My customer was thrilled with the robust self-standing loading dock they received and how simply the project was executed. Personally, I was impressed with the problem-solving and support we received from Dockzilla Co. and how quickly this was completed.” – Sales Rep
