Solutions that align perfectly with your business needs

Drayage is a form of trucking service that connects the different modes of shipping, such as ocean freight or air freight. It’s a short-haul trip that transports goods from port/rail ramp to the final destination, usually before or after its long-haul shipping process. Typically, involves several steps and stakeholders to ensure the smooth transportation of goods.

Container drayage refers to the transportation of containerized cargo over short distances for long-haul shipments that exceed the 400-mile radius, there are additional options available. Include local drayage by transloading using full truckload or rail services. Alternatively, there may be options for direct drayage from the port for long-haul shipments or drayage from a nearby ramp, but these options would need to be confirmed with the SSLs or other relevant parties involved in the transportation logistics.

The import process involves picking up the container at the port or ramp before its loading dock, then transporting it to the warehouse for unloading, which can be either live or drop-off and pick. The empty container is returned to the loading dock after the delivery process is complete.

When we’re you talking about exports, the process begins picking up the empty container at the Port or Ramp, then it is taken to the warehouse for loading, which can be live load or drop and pick. Finally, a container is taken to the port or ramp with its contents.

DGL do offer transloading at the main ports in the US. As well Stevedoring services (specialized transloading for Heavy/Oversized Cargo).
A chassis split refers to a situation where a shipping container and its chassis (a specialized trailer designed to transport containers) are separated at different locations. Normally, when a container is picked up or delivered, it is transported on a chassis that remains with the container throughout the journey. However, in a chassis split scenario, the container and chassis are separated for various reasons, typically due to operational or logistical considerations.

The cost of the dray from the port is cheaper, and it’s more competitive when the lane is long. The containers are usually moved to these places via rail, in order to save money by keeping the dray at the lowest possible distance.
