Photo Illustration of Dock High buildingDock high - Where the height of the slab at the bottom of the overhead door is approximately 4 feet above the ground level.  This is a standard height for most shipping containers, and provides convenient access to load and unload these shipping containers to/from the warehouse space. The height of these shipping containers on trailers can vary slightly from trailer to trailer, and this difference is usually accomodated by the use of a dock plate or dock leveler.

If you have a grade level building and need a dock, read this.

See our discussion of Dock Wells to achieve dock-high loading in grade-level buildings here.
