What is Drayage?
The basic answer is – the act of pulling ocean containers into and out of the main harbor port and railroad terminals. The word drayage goes back more than 100 years and was adopted to explain the action of dray horses pulling wagons or carts.
The more specific answer in logistics and the shipping industry, drayage is the actual transportation of merchandise in a shipping container that sometimes requires a fairly short distance move. It is frequently a component to a longer over-all transfer and is generally carried out in just one work shift. However, it can be part of a longer distance move if needed. Best described as using a large truck to pickup from or deliver to an ocean or seaport, border point, intermodal terminal, or an inland port while the origin and destination are in the same metropolitan or urban area.
