What Is Drayage?
In the shipping industry, drayage is commonly used to mean two very different things.
1. Drayage & Sea Shipping Containers
Drayage is also used in reference to the short haul transporting of sea containers from the pier to a nearby intermodal rail facility. This service is also commonly referred to as cartage.
2. Drayage & Trade Shows
At trade shows, drayage is the name of the service that moves exhibitor shipping between the exhibitor’s truck at the loading dock and their booth on the trade show floor.
