Taylor Logistics Inc Blog

Definition –  Drayage is typically used to describe the trucking service from a port to a rail ramp, warehouse, or other destination.


History – The word drayage originally stems from the term dray, a low cart without fixed sides that is used for carrying heavy loads a short distance. Although a dray is defined as a cart historically, a dray may be any vehicle used to transport heavy loads a short distance, such as a truck or sled.
