Drayage is a shipping and logistics industry term that means transporting goods over a short distance. Gulf Winds best explains intermodal drayage as the transportation of frieght into a container or vehicle using several modes of transportation. There are many benefits to intermodal transportation with Gulf Winds! We use this method because it reduces cargo handling, so we can ensure increased security with your freight, reduction in losses, and faster transportation. Port drayage is known as transporting goods from the port to a short distance or area. Let Gulf Winds help you with intermodal drayage and port drayage services!
