Generally Freight elevators are designed as per the class 'c' Loading

They are gennerally three types

Class C--These loadings apply where the weight of the concentrated load, including an industrial power or hand truck, if used, is more than 1/4 of the rated load and where the load to be carried does not exceed the rated load. There are three types of Class C loading as follows: Class C1--Industrial Truck Loading where truck is carried by the elevator. Class C2--Industrial Truck Loading where truck is not carried by the elevator but used only for loading and unloading. Class C3--Other loading with Heavy Concentrations where truck is not used.

Hope this has clarified you to some extent
