Our Drayage Services

Drayage is an important part of the longer shipping process. Our services involve taking the shipping containers from the ship decks, and then loading them onto chassis.

Most containers are your standard 20 or 40 foot containers, which we will supply chassis for on a rental basis per day.

Some containers are “open top.” These containers usually carry goods that are out of gauge. Iron Horse specializes in the transportation of out of gauge containers. These containers require permits and escorts.

What is Drayage?

Drayage is an important aspect of the construction industry, and it is constantly growing. Building materials such as glass, curtain wall, lumber, and stone is sent from many different countries to the United States. When these materials arrive to the port in a shipping container, you will need that freight moved. This is where drayage trucking services come in.

The term "Drayage" describes the process of transporting goods over short distances. This term is used mainly by the container shipping industry.

Whether you are sending or receiving a container, Iron Horse helps you move it.
