Drayage

 

 

 

 

 

     In the shipping industry and logistics, drayage is the transport of goods over a short distance, often as part of a longer overall move and is typically completed in a single work shift. Some research defines it specifically as "a truck picking up from or delivering to a seaport (ocean container), border point, inland port, or intermodal (train) terminal with both the trip origin and destination in the same urban area".

Drayage History

     The term originally meant "to transport by a sideless cart", or dray. Such carts, pulled by dray horses, were used to move goods short distances, historically limited by the physical limitations of a dray horse. Dray activities generally occurred at marine ports, spreading to canal and rail terminals. Over time, the dray horse was replaced by the delivery truck.
