What Is Container Drayage? 

In intermodal trucking, the term drayage refers to the transport of cargo in a container by a specialized trucking company, such as Derby Logistics. Our company transports the container between ports, rail ramps, and shipping docks. After loading the cargo into a container, it remains untouched until it arrives at its final destination. 

Oftentimes, intermodal drayage in North America involves moving from ocean ports to trucks to rail hubs. Typically, container drayage is one part of a longer supply chain. Efficiency throughout the transporting of goods fosters a strong supply chain that lowers the company’s bottom-line to improve their profits.

Oversized and Out of Gauge Cargo 

Not everything fits neatly into a standard container. At Derby Logistics, we have extensive experience transporting oversized cargo. Whether you require an open-top container or a flat-rack to load your out-of-gauge (OOG) cargo, we can make it work efficiently and effectively.

  • Open-top containers: often used when cargo height exceeds the standard container but fits the width
  • Flat racks: typically utilized when cargo requires sideloading or exceeds standard container width

The expert team at Derby freight understands the importance of timely and safe transport. We place our focus on efficient service while ensuring anything we transport is safe.
