  • You may use a small wheeled-bag or hand-carry items that fit through a single glass door. Dollies, carts, carriers, etc. are NOT permitted.
  • Loading or unloading anything larger will be prohibited.


What if I have larger items?

  • You will need to come in through the marshalling yard and gain your dock pass.
  • POVs must have one person always remain with the vehicle on the dock.
  • No long-term parking will be allowed on the docks, you will have a maximum of 30 minutes to hand-carry items.
  • To further assist you, TEG offers cart service for POVs. 
  • Flatbeds 15' or longer, U-Haul's, or other box trucks and vans are NOT considered POVs and will be subject to standard material handling rates.
