Simplify your Drayage Operations

Connect easily with your supply chain


Drayage Services in 2023

If you are involved in drayage transport, you are part of the long, proud history. That heritage has played a key role in the delivery and transport of goods ever since ships started arriving with cargo in this country. As a drayage trucker, you act as a critical component in the international shipping economy.

What is drayage? Drayage is the hauling of goods, containers and shipments short distances between the longer hauls of intermodal transports or to a final destination. Drayage companies and drayage services take care of the critical transports that connect one mode of transport to another. These drayage containers are often picked up in piers or railway stations and moved to another location before embarking on the next stretch of their journey.

Common Drayage Questions 

What are drayage trucks?

Drayage trucks are vehicles that move freight from one mode of transport to another location as a drayage service. 

What are drayage fees?

Drayage fees are the price that is paid to the shipper that moves the drayage goods from one location to another. These fees can range wildly with factors such as availability of drivers, size of the load and many more impacting the fee for drayage services.

What is drayage in the supply chain?

Drayage is the critical component that connects cargo to its next destination in the supply chain. Similar to the way ligaments work in your body, drayage enables the other larger modes of transport to do the heavy lifting.

Are there many drayage opportunities?

Drayage opportunities are more lucrative than ever for drayage companies! According to Matt Schrap, CEO of Harbor Trucking Association, 

“We’re always looking for qualified drivers. No pun intended — these guys are in the driver’s seat. They are commanding some of the highest spot rates we’ve ever seen here in drayage.”

How to find drayage customers? How to find drayage loads?

Are you asking yourself “How do I find drayage loads?” The best way to ensure that you have drayage loads and customers as a drayage trucker is to use a professional dispatcher. They can make sure that your drayage services are always being used.

Everyday Drayage Challenges and Solutions


Drayage Challenge #1: Find Shipments

As a drayage company, the first and most pressing challenge is making sure that you have shipments to move. That’s where professional dispatching services are needed to help you fill your truck, day in and day out.

Drayage Challenge #2: Manage Bookkeeping

Making sure that invoices get to where they need to be can be a headache. As a drayage trucker, use invoicing software to make sure that you and your clients get all of the required paperwork and invoices.

Drayage Challenge #3: Find a TMS

Paperwork can be a nightmare! What if you could centralize everything from lading bills to proof of shipments in one simple system? You can! By using QR codes for your freight management system, you turn what is a mess of paperwork into a simple and easy to use system.

Drayage Challenge #4: Provide Excellent Customer Service

Clients want to know where their drayage shipments are in real-time. Give them that opportunity to see your drayage truckers with load broadcast capabilities. Use GPS to broadcast the position of the shipments as they move from point A to point B.
