Ultra-Efficient Drive Ramp - Dockzilla
DZ Series


Seeking to address inefficiencies at its bustling warehouse, a global e-commerce titan employed Dockzilla to optimize its existing grade-level loading dock layout to an elevated loading platform.

Under an extremely tight deadline, Dockzilla designed and installed a modular platform with a multi-lane drive ramp at the customer’s warehouse, accommodating 20 last-mile vehicles at once. This innovative solution eliminated the need for manual push-handling via a walk ramp, enabling them to load cargo directly from the dock onto the van, saving time and effort.

Results at a Glance:

  • Modular design allows customers to relocate and expand drive ramps as needed
  • Installed quickly and without any facility operational downtime
  • Platform features adjustable base plates to accommodate uneven grade conditions
  • Increased safety by adding enclosed handrails and serrated steel grating for weather protection


The Challenge

BEFORE: Ineffective grade-level loadout.

AFTER: Highly functional multi-lane modular platform.


Our customer was struggling with a cumbersome process for loading last-mile vehicles from their elevated dock to grade-level last mile vehicles. Their goal was to identify a highly functional & modular solution that could be installed quickly without disrupting regular facility operations.

Project Mandatories:

  • Platform solution that would align with dock doors to reduce cycle time
  • Extra wide drive-in ramps for larger vehicle sizes
  • Address uneven grading issues & existing pillars/overhang obstacles
  • Install without downtime or impact to facility operations
  • Complete project within an extremely tight timeline
  • Accommodate 20 last-mile vehicle positions for loading/unloading

The Solution


Dockzilla stepped in to provide a game-changing solution: a modular multi-lane drive ramp platform that streamlined their last mile vehicle loading and improved the facility’s cycle time and safety.

From design to installation, Dockzilla was the customer’s single point of contact, ensuring a seamless and hassle-free experience throughout the entire process.
