The types of docks that industrial warehouses have influenced their price and how they optimize the loading and unloading of goods. 

An example of this is the warehouses that have only Grade-Level loading docks. They usually have a price close to or slightly below average. On the other hand, properties with elevated loading docks have higher property prices. It's not just a play on words: High-Docks loading docks offer many advantages: the most obvious is that they significantly level the area between the trailer and the warehouse if the latter is elevated above ground level. Thus, loading and unloading time is shortened, which is perfect for logistics, factories, and manufacturing. Renting is the best option if you need a small warehouse with modest space. Buying properties with Dock-High loading docks is the goal for more area and to become a warehouse landlord.

Photo of a large dock-high loading facility.This is actually a pretty loaded question (pun intended if you like). At a very basic level, Dock-High docks are used to simplify getting "stuff" into and out of a building - generally from or to a truck trailer ... or train car. One of our more popular articles provides a definition of Dock-High loading. The main alternative is grade-level building access - i.e. being able to drive into a building so that the "stuff" you work with can be lifted from and onto whatever you are using to transport your "stuff." "Stuff" can mean anything from raw materials to finished goods, supplies, tools, tooling, etc., etc.. Size and weight are big factors in deciding which of these two methods of moving "stuff" into and out of your building is used - with bigger and heavier stuff tending to be grade-level, and lighter and smaller tending to be dock-high. There is also the issue of whether the stuff you are transferring needs to be well protected from the elements including during the loading and unloading process. There are always exceptions, and much is likely being left out. Docks are seen attached to many types of buildings - manufacturing, R&D, Distribution, Storage, etc. The measure of how many docks you need is tied directly to how much "stuff" you need to move into and out of your building/space in a given time period (also a complex calculation). That's a fairly simple, conceptual discussion of Dock-High dock uses. Also, now that we've compared and contrasted dock-high vs. grade-loading, note in the above photo that most (nearly all?) buildings need to have a bit of grade loading in any case. Read on for some discussion of more detailed issues surrounding Dock-High docks.

Since docks and loading/unloading is an important issue, we have several articles on the topic. Aside from the links in the section above, we have Warehouse Loading Types, Dock-Well - Picture with Definition, Side-Load Dock Well - Picture with Definition, Dock-High Loading - Convert an Existing FacilityExterior Elevated Dock - Picture with Definition and Dock-Leveler - Picture with Definition. The above are all links. If you have an interest, bon appétit. We'll likely be adding other articles on issues like Environmental Control during loading and unloading, Fork Lifts, etc., and we'll do our best to update this as pertinent items are added to the site. We spend a good deal of time on this and related content, and expect to continue to do so.
