Many aspects of the logistics industry must overcome supply chain hurdles with the help of partners like drayage companies. Challenges persist as shippers race for available capacity in a booming e-commerce world. Difficulties such as the trucking shortage across the United States or the chassis shortage at ports for drayage, force shippers to find new, innovative ways to snag their space for transit. Drayage companies are now adding value by providing supply chain continuity through warehouse assets and freight brokerage services so that once a container is drayed, if there is not truckload capacity immediately available, the drayage company can use its assets to store the goods or the container while the brokerage division looks for capacity.
