Drayage: Bridging the gap to and from the port
At DeWitt Guam, we specialize in complete shipping solutions that move your cargo all the way from their origin to their destination.
However, when you’re working with other freight carriers or even suppliers, you might find yourself in a scenario where you need an additional delivery solution. Let’s say you have a full container that needs to get to the port, or perhaps you have a shipment arriving from a supplier in China who’s only paid for the ocean freight, leaving it to you to move that cargo to your warehouse. In those cases, you’ll need a drayage solution to move your goods to and from the port.
Drayage is an industry term for short-distance trucking that often involves pickup or delivery to a port. The term originally referred to a type of horse-drawn cart known as a “dray,” which was used to transport goods from shipping docks. Because the horses pulling the drays could only move the heavy cargo so far, drayage became associated with moving cargo over short distances.
When you need drayage services on Guam, we can help—no matter what type of cargo you need to move. Because we own our own trucking fleet, we can provide dependable and flexible solutions at competitive rates. We can also offer customs clearance assistance, as needed.
As a member of the DeWitt Companies, our drayage services extend far beyond Guam. We have the resources and relationships to offer door-to-door services wherever your cargo needs to go—even internationally. Whether you need help with a one-time shipment or you’re looking for help managing your supply chain on a regular basis, we can help you set up a solution.
