    Best ramp we have ever had

    The delivery time was very fast. My guy say this is the best ramp we have ever had at the docks. Our ships are getting taller, and the ramp makes everything eaiser on my guys. Our safety department was very excited about the ramp. I am ordering a second one for the other ship dock.
