Freight elevators in commercial buildings 

Behind every beautiful lobby or front entrance is a hardworking, behind-the-scenes freight elevator carrying goods to other floors. Otis has decades of experience creating custom elevator solutions for special operations requiring special design, in addition to understanding that loading and unloading heavy duties requires hard technical constraints on the elevator structure and doors. We aim to create quiet, seamless experiences that allow commercial traffic without interrupting the flow of the passenger elevator bank.

Industrial freight elevators

We also understand that freight elevators in industrial buildings are built to carry things. Designed with slower speeds but built to carry heavier loads (10 tons or more), we know that failure isn’t an option as it can lead to stopping a full production line and losing hours of work. Otis has almost unlimited options for customizations to ensure that you can get the right freight elevator for your particular industry needs.
