Ken,

What follows is speculation and not specific knowledge, but...

Most likely so that loads that are wider than normal clearances can also be unloaded on what may be the public delivery track. And by that I mean that the loading dock could be rolled back a few inches to serve as the loading dock for a wider load, or mayhaps rolled back a few feet to get it out of the way.

Regards,
Bruce Smith

Any idea why the entire loading platform (in front of the NWX reefer, to the right of the pickup) appears to be on wheels?
(look at the bottom-right, near the front track)
