How Does Drayage Service Work?
Our drayage service works by picking up your freight from the port and moving them to a second location, like a distribution center or warehouse. Drayage is often the “first step” on the journey.
Benefits of Drayage Carriers
Drayage carriers are an essential part of the supply chain. Without them, ports would become logjammed with freight and the entire supply chain would be affected, similar to what happened during the pandemic of 2020. Other benefits of drayage carriers include:
- Cost: Transporting your freight over short distances via truck can save both time and money.
- Accuracy: We use state-of-the-art warehouse software to manage shipments and ensure accuracy.
- Security: Our staff is highly experienced with drayage operations and will ensure that your freight makes it from point A to point B without an issue.
What's the difference between Drayage Work & Intermodal Shipping?
“Intermodal shipping” refers to the shipping of freight in a variety of vehicles, like container ships, semi-trucks, trains, etc. Drayage shipping is a part of intermodal shipping. It’s what happens when goods are transferred from a ship onto a truck or train, and then transported to the next location on the leg of the journey.
What can be included in drayage imports/exports?
Pretty much anything that can be shipped legally in the United States is included in drayage imports/exports. As long as it can be physically moved from point A to point B, it can be part of the drayage.
