Various types of tailgate systems may come with various lifting capacities. It is also advisable to make the weight of your products known to the tailgate lorry rental company if you are renting such a vehicle so that the right type of vehicle can be assigned to you accordingly.

With the tailgate system, you may not require any forklifts or stackers but having a pallet jack may be able to help you to move the palletised products or products which are stacked onto pallets into your factory or into the warehouse once the goods are on the ground.
Besides not requiring forklifts or stackers, a tailgate system may also help to speed up your logistics and warehousing operations and make the loading and unloading process more efficient for your business.
