Selecting Drayage Companies with added Service Benefits
Moving your valuable freight and merchandise to its final destination is challenging. When shipments are missed or delayed, how do you overcome these obstacles and swiftly? In this rapid-paced business environment, we all know things can happen- weather delays, vessel delays, rerouting freight, just to name a few. In today’s competitive market of harbor drayage companies, it's essential that you select a company with a proven track record who can provide other value added services and unique benefits besides standard drayage to help streamline your shipments and fast. For example, if you are shipping throughout the West Coast region, especially in Southern California, you will need a reliable company with facilities close to all major ports who can provide flexible transportation options should problems occur, and customizable solutions to help lower costs and stay within budget.
Selecting an asset-based intermodal trucking company who specializes in import/export container drayage with added service benefits including transloading, multimodal transportation, overweight corridor accessibility, cross-docking, and warehousing has proven to be a successful option for businesses looking to optimize their supply chain and meet their goals. As mentioned above, problems can happen during one aspect of transporting your goods or throughout the entire process of the shipment. You might need to cross-dock and store your freight in a warehouse to meet your deadlines. When you partner with an experienced company who can provide multiple services other than standard drayage, there is a higher likelihood of significant cost-savings in rates, added value of working with an industry expert who can assist with problem-solving, and the peace of mind of working with one reliable source versus multiple sources.
