Dohrn has the largest liftgate fleet in the Midwest!

Our liftgates are designed to assist driver in delivering freight without docks or assistance.  By safely lowering the freight to the ground, our liftgates make unloading easier and more efficient, reducing the risk of damaging the freight or the injuring employees. 

We are dedicated to providing outstanding customer service to any type of business and ensuring that your freight is delivered on time and in perfect condition.  We understand that each shipment and customer is unique, and we work closely with our customer to customize our liftgate service to meet their specific needs.

While many carriers offer a liftgate service, no one else in the Midwest has the number of liftgate units as Dohrn Transfer.  This means that your freight will not have to wait for equipment to become available to send it out for delivery.  Liftgate deliveries are delivered in the standard transit times, meaning your shipment will be delivered faster. 


  • On-Time Service:  The large quantity of liftgates we have means we will deliver in our standard transit when your freight needs a liftgate.
  • Convenience:  Deliveries to homes, strip malls, nursing homes, hospitals, hotels, etc can receive freight without disrupting their operation.  We even offer unattended deliveries.
  • Intact:  Liftgates ensure no freight damages when a dock is not present.
  • Safety:  We are equipped to handle the more difficult locations in a safe manner, for both our customers and our employees.


“We currently need lift gates for 95% of our deliveries, in the past we have struggled finding a carrier that could handle this capacity. After switching to Dohrn we have been able to consistently ship our orders with lift gates and we had great feedback from our customers on their deliveries.” – Carwash Manufacturer
