What Is Drayage?
The drayage process refers to the transporting of goods a short distance, usually between intermodal drayage points. The term drayage comes from when dray horses would move goods to or from a major port to houses, farms, and factories.
Drayage freight is handled similarly, moving containers and shipments from ocean ports to warehouses, rail yards, and factories. While containers can travel in bulk on an ocean freighter or a train to major ports and rail yards, drayage handles the delivery of specific containers or cargo within a container to their final destination.
When Is Drayage Shipping Used?
Drayage shipping is used regularly to transport goods short distances and is largely used to ship commercial products to their final destinations. While drayage is a key process in the international shipping and logistics industry, it also plays a crucial role in consumer products as well.
Shopping malls often have a loading dock where all stores receive shipments transported by drayage carriers. This also occurs for major trade shows, as trucks bring in exhibits, products, and equipment from all over in a short period of time. The coordination of all these short trips is possible due to drayage logistics and a large network of movers.
At Asiana USA, we coordinate efficiently with customers to ensure the smooth delivery and return of containers, equating to effective cost savings for you and your customer, and increased customer satisfaction overall. With our top-of-the-line tracking systems, we can provide you and your customers with up-to-the-minute updates concerning your shipments and always ensure your cargo is shipped in a manner that effectively optimizes costs and timeliness for your drayage shipment.
We develop and nurture relationships with many trucking companies, so we can provide flexible scheduling options to suit different client needs. This helps us plan routes ahead of time and offer the best rates possible.
Drayage service can be a tricky and precise business, connecting a lot of moving parts. At Asiana USA, we have made it our business to work with a reliable network of long-distance movers, as well as the many short distance truckers that make up so much of the starts and ends of our supply chain or shipping experiences.
