Freight and passenger elevators are types of elevators that move people or goods between floors of a building. Freight elevators are designed to move materials from floor to floor while passenger elevators are made to move people between building’s floors. Freight elevators are not designed with the same safety equipment as a passenger elevator. Freight elevators are generally larger and capable of carrying heavy loads compared to passenger elevators.

There are some factors people need to consider when choosing the right elevator including quality, speed, maintenance cost and service availability, indicators and load capacity of the elevators, and security features.

Below are some of the distinct characteristics of freight and passenger elevators:
• Freight Elevators
o They often have manually operated doors.
o They usually have rugged interior finishes to prevent damage while loading and unloading.
o They travel at lower speeds.
o They are usually installed in industrial plants, shopping centers and warehouses.
• Passenger Elevators
o They are usually found in malls, hospitals, hotels, homes, and other buildings.
o They are generally used in small buildings.
o Their carrying capacity is less.
o Their insides are well-furnished.
o They are helpful for those who are physically challenged.
o These elevators have lower waiting time and downtime.
o Their safety features may include manual door hold, air conditioner, security camera and interlocking door system.
