Drayage

What is Drayage?

In the shipping and logistics sectors, drayage is the transportation of products across a short distance. Drayage is frequently included as part of a larger overall transfer, such as transporting cargo from a ship to a warehouse. Per some study, it is defined as “a truck pickup from or delivery to a seaport, border crossing, inland port, or intermodal terminal with both the trip origin and destination located inside the same urban area.” Port drayage is a phrase that refers to short hauls between ports and other destinations. Drayage is a critical component in the process of transporting goods to and from other modes of transportation. Additionally, the term drayage is used to refer to the cost charged for such services.
