The part of ocean freight transportation known as dray loads, in its simplest form, refers to the movement of freight from an ocean port to an inland destination. These moves often fall within 50 miles or less of the port. The focus for drayage services involves taking containers to rail yards or onto trucks for transportation to local distribution hubs and warehouses. There, the containers are unloaded, sorted, segmented, and routed to the next leg of the trip to their final destination. When shippers work with expert carriers who bring familiarity and proficiency to the craft, the entire process from start to finish becomes much more streamlined and profitable.
