Pier drayage, also known as port drayage service, is a drayage service that focuses on the transportation of cargo containers within an ocean port or shipping container terminal, specifically between the pier (dock) and various points within the port or nearby destinations. It is a critical component of logistics operations involving maritime shipping, import/export activities, and the movement of goods through major seaports.

Inter-carrier drayage refers to the transportation of cargo containers or goods between different carriers or logistics providers, each responsible for different segments of the supply chain. It optimizes logistics by leveraging the expertise and resources of multiple carriers, enhancing efficiency, and allowing cargo to transition smoothly between various segments of the supply chain.

Shuttle drayage is a critical logistics solution for optimizing storage capacity both at congested port and rail yard facilities and in offsite storage scenarios. It involves the systematic movement of cargo containers between these busy hubs and offsite storage locations, such as a container yard, container freight station, or distribution center, ensuring efficient space utilization and preventing congestion. Shuttle drayage facilitates flexible container management and supports streamlined inventory operations. It also contributes to cost savings by allowing businesses to store excess inventory cost-effectively and transporting goods as needed, ultimately enhancing overall supply chain efficiency.

This type of drayage service involves the transportation of freight directly from the shipper’s or consignee’s location (usually their facility or warehouse) to the designated destination, which could be another facility, distribution center, manufacturing plant, or any other specific point. In this service, the cargo is picked up at the origin “door” and delivered to the destination “door,” providing end-to-end logistics support. Door-to-door drayage may involve various transportation modes, including drayage trucks, rail, ships, or a combination of these, depending on the specific logistics requirements.

Expedited drayage is designed for the rapid transportation of freight to meet tight delivery deadlines. This service prioritizes speed and urgency, ensuring that shipments are swiftly picked up from their origin, typically a port or rail yard, and delivered to their destination with minimal delays.
