Photo of Exterior Elevated DockA covered exterior elevated dock is a concrete structure that facilitates loading and unloading of containers at or near the 48” level without obstructing warehouse access. This type of dock is implemented for various reasons, including the need for more loading and unloading slots for trucks or adding dock-high capability to a site.

These docks are typically constructed using poured-in-place concrete, ensuring a durable and stable platform for managing heavy loads. The elevated design accommodates various truck sizes and allows for efficient material handling, contributing to smoother logistics operations. Additionally, the covered structure provides protection from the elements, ensuring that both workers and goods are shielded from rain, snow, or harsh sunlight during the loading and unloading process.

When selecting a warehouse for rent, lease, or sale, it’s essential to consider the facility’s features and capabilities, such as the presence of an exterior elevated dock. To learn more about the critical criteria for selecting warehouses, read our article on important facility criteria to consider when leasing.
