While all systems with Thunderbolt 3 Controllers have a USB Type-C port, having a USB Type-C port does not ensure that you have a Thunderbolt 3 Controller.
Refer to this Dell knowledge-base article to ensure your system has the Thunderbolt 3 Controller required to use the Dell Thunderbolt Dock (TB16): Systems with USB Type-C ports that lack a Thunderbolt 3 controller.

NOTE: A system requiring more than a 130 Watt AC Adapter must have its own AC power adapter attached to the system in addition to the dock AC Adapter.
NOTE: Ensure the latest BIOS revision available is installed before connecting to these docks.
