Every year, likely over 20 million shipping containers are dispatched carrying important items. And in a perfect world, every shipping port would be easily interconnected to get these containers where they’re going. But if you ship large quantities of product for your business, you know that’s not the case at all.
What’s the best way for you to improve your supply chain and get your products where they need to go? Drayage.
What is drayage? Drayage is third party logistics that transport shipping containers between ports or from the port to an end destination with over the road trucking. It is an integral part of your shipping process, so it is important to look for the right drayage company to secure your goods.
When to Use Drayage
For smoother shipping operations, you’ll want to use drayage to transfer to and from or between ports. Much of your product’s journey occurs via shipping carrier. The finer points of delivery may require a second method of transportation.
A logistics service provider can help you fill in holes in the route for your products. Whether you need to get from ship to ship or from ship to rail, there is a strategic, cost-effective way to transport your goods.
You may also need drayage when crossing international borders or transporting your goods to temporary shipping container storage. An experienced drayage company can provide these supply chain services and get your goods from Point A to Point B.
What Kind of Drayage Do You Need?
What kind of drayage you need may dictate the third party logistics companies that are available to you. Foxconn Logistics includes several types of drayage and supply chain services. When you contact us, we can help you decide what type of drayage makes the most sense for your shipping needs.
Typical drayage options include transport between ports or transport to and from something like a train station. Drayage can also occur within ports and terminals between larger freight carrier options. For longer OTR transportation options, consider truck shipping, expedited trucking, and contacting flatbed companies.
