An inclined ramp, for loading and unloading rolling cargo between ground level and a cargo bay of an air transport, incorporates a stowable lift for handling palletized cargo which is deployable into an operative position providing a horizontal pallet receiving platform and which is retractable into a collapsed, stowed position nested in an elongate recess between treadways of the ramp. The platform of the lift is supportively mounted on a carriage which rides up and down the ramp on tracks mounted within the recess. The rolling-cargo ramp, with the pallet lift stowed therein, is retractable into the cargo bay for on-board transit and is deployable from the cargo bay for use at airfields where specialized, ground-based cargo-handling equipment is unavailable and when a mix of both rolling and palletized cargo is involved.
