Transit sheds and warehouses, Civil Engineering

Transit Sheds and Warehouses:

These are sheds constructed as steel frames or RCC frames with a steel truss, with galvanised iron or asbestos cement sheets. Transit sheds may be single or two storied. They are constructed about 8-25 m away from the dock wall to house a rail track, roads, and gantry cranes.

Warehouses are constructed at a distance of 10-25 m away from the transit sheds.

The whole area between the dock wall and the transit shed, and between the transit shed and warehouse is paved. A cement concrete pavement or concrete block pavement is long-lasting and maintenance-free.

Good lighting and fire lighting arrangements are needed inside transit sheds and warehouses.
