Loading Dock Policies

In accordance with the Supplemental Environmental Impact Report submitted by and for the SCC expansion (1992), the SCC has enacted the Transportation Management Plan (TMP). The purpose of the TMP is to mitigate potential traffic problems associated with events. This plan addresses loading, parking, and alternative methods of transportation (i.e. buses). Examples of events needing TMP include:

  • Events with exhibitor participation 

  • Events utilizing the complete “J” Street frontage for attendee drop-off or pick-up

  • Events with eight or more trucks at the loading dock


The Sacramento Convention Center is easily accessible for move in and move out. Featuring a loading bay with 12 docks and is easily accessible to the Exhibit Halls and easy access to a freight elevator to the Ballroom Level.

SCC staff enforcing the TMP is authorized to tow vehicles in violation of the TMP or city ordinances, or any vehicles that compromise the integrity of the facility’s life safe systems. For additional information regarding TMP, please contact your Event Manager.
