Safe Harbor is the leading manufacturer of custom tracking gangways for dockside access to ships and barges. Track mounted gangways move along tracks on the dock and can be secured in place to provide safe transport between ship and dock. 

A track mounted gangway is a type of gangway that can be automatically raised or lowered to meet the varying levels of ships and barges. Tracking gangways are designed with fixed or pivoting mounts depending on the application. The gangway ramps offer an efficient solution to loading and unloading cargo.
