The importance of drayage in port logistics processes.
Today I want you to understand that the cargo flow process performed by drayage is essential for exports and imports to occur efficiently and quickly.
Through them, carriers give continuity to the freight forwarding service. Currently, this process is based on the use of trucks and trailers, but this has not always been the case. In the past, this process was carried out with horse-drawn carts.
The distribution of products that are handled by the ports and taken to the warehouses, or that make the reverse journey, is a process that sometimes goes unnoticed by people, but if it is not done strategically, it will generate considerable impacts.
To better understand this process, I classify here the main applications of the drayage process; see:
Door to door drayage
In this process our customer can count on the transport service to the storage place through the road transport service. This is when the cargo has to be taken to a place far away from the port.
Products that are considered to be more sensitive fall into this classification. So that they are not affected by high temperatures or other external factors. This cargo is quickly taken to a warehouse that guarantees its safety.
The execution of pier drayage is necessary when the means by which the cargo was transported, in this case a container, passes through a warehouse, is handled, and then follows its destination.
