Availability of Ramp Up Industrial Spaces
This may be due to the benefits and added convenience of being in ramp up industrial units as loading and unloading need not only be done at the common loading and unloading bay area which are sometimes only located at the ground floor of certain buildings. Furthermore, the loading and unloading bays may not always be available for use all the time as it is shared among various industrial users within the building.
In terms of vehicle accessibility, ramp up industrial units allow vehicles to have direct access to the unit. However, different buildings are built and designed differently and may or may not allow direct vehicular access for container trailers. Some may allow ramp up access for 20 footer container trailers while some may also allow 40 footer container trailers to ramp up to the unit depending on the specifications of the industrial building.
In terms of efficiency, companies with frequent loading and unloading of goods tend to benefit as work processes become more efficient and more goods can be loaded and unloaded in a shorter amount of time due to the direct vehicular access that a ramp up industrial space offers.
Value for Money
While ramp up units tend to have a rental rate that may seem to be higher than flatted or terrace factory units at first, it may still be a better choice to go for ramp up units especially if the nature of your business operations requires very frequent or daily loading and unloading. Overall labour cost may be reduced or kept leaner as the amount of manpower needed for loading and unloading may be reduced and more manpower can be allocated for other core business activities.
