Drayage Service

The process of hauling freight short distances by truck.

What is Drayage Service?

Drayage Service is an essential aspect of the shipping process that involves moving goods over short distances by ground transport. This process is used as a connecting shipment for an overall longer haul. 

The most vital use of drayage services in modern trucking is for removal of full shipping containers from port terminals. Drayage services focus on moving these containers to warehouses located near the ports for goods to be quickly unloaded and packaged for further distribution. 

Empty containers are then returned to ports directly or to container hubs until they are needed. Rates for drayage service depend on the proximity of the port to the available warehouse, current congestion concerns at a given port, and the availability of container chassis designed for trailering shipping containers.
