Because a drayage load can mean a few different things, confusion among carriers is common. Many carriers link drayage with going into a port, but that isn't always true. While all drayage loads typically originate from a port of entry, there are often several legs of a drayage journey before a container turns up at its final stop. Legs of a drayage load may include:

Why Are Drayage Companies in Atlanta, GA So Important?

You may be thinking, what's so important about drayage? It's such a small step in the container storage transport process. In reality, it's an integral piece needed in the logistics industry and a crucial part of U.S. supply chain management.

To truly understand the importance of drayage, let's use flowers as an example. Most cut flower shipments enter the market from areas in South America until they end up at Dutch auction houses. Once there, wholesalers purchase flowers in bulk and send those products to retail outlets worldwide. Because flowers are perishable, they typically need to be refrigerated and are often shipped in reefer containers. These refrigerated vessels must maintain a certain temp to prevent loss.

Drayage companies like RelyEx allow flower shippers to send their products from Argentinian ports to airports in the Netherlands with peace of mind because their products are protected. The only way to accomplish this feat is with the help of swift, meticulous port drayage services. Drayage companies allow flower shippers to send their products from Argentinian ports to airports in the Netherlands with peace of mind, because their products are protected. The only way to accomplish this feat is with the help of swift, meticulous port drayage services.

If port drayage is compromised, it can cause delays and even fines. You know the packages you get delivered to your front door from apps like Amazon? Without drayage and drayage brokers, one or two-day shipping times wouldn't even be possible.

As a multi-billion-dollar industry in the U.S. alone, it seems like drayage shipping issues shouldn't exist. But the fact is inefficiencies and congestion are still major problems at ports. Whether it's a lack of carriers, absent chassis, or overburdened terminals, delays lead to missed deadlines, lost revenue, and worse.

But anytime challenges exist, so too do innovative solutions.

Paperwork Errors

Typically, shippers need four specific documents to clear shipments through customs: A Bill of Lading (or BOL), a commercial invoice, a packing list, and an arrival notice. Seasoned drayage brokers like RelyEx are used to preparing these documents, but new shippers tend to miss this step due to inexperience.

Payment Delays

If a shipper only pays for part of their shipment, a vessel operator may refuse to release their freight until their bill is fully paid. Payment delays lead to cargo detention at the port of entry, which triggers demurrage charges.


Documents Received Too Late

Paperwork is needed when you're shipping goods with a drayage company. When documents like the Certificate of Origin or Bill of Lading arrive at their destination late, you can expect demurrage fees. RelyEx avoids this situation entirely by being proactive when submitting paperwork.

Additional causes for demurrage fees can include:

  • Damaged Container Storage
  • Custom Released Containers
  • Storage Containers Are Too Heavy

Trump grand jury decision came faster than predicted


Atlanta residents and people across the country spent Monday hovered over their phones and computers, anxiously waiting to hear if a Fulton County grand jury would indict former President Donald Trump and his associates on charges related to their alleged efforts to overturn the 2020 election in Georgia.

Driving the news: Grand jury proceedings moved quicker than anticipated, with the courthouse staying open well beyond normal operating hours on Monday in order to deliver the indictments before the day was over — and without hearing from all of the witnesses who were subpoenaed to testify.

Former Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan appeared before the grand jury yesterday, despite being originally scheduled to testify today, the AJC reports.

Quick take: The anticipation of a decision reverberated across the city when a document spelling out potential charges against Trump appeared briefly on the Fulton County clerk of courts' website.

The intrigue: Trump's possible trial could likely be televised in Georgia, as state law requires proceedings be filmed with the approval of a judge, Axios' Ivana Saric reports.

Falcons release depth chart before preseason game vs. Bengals

Cincinnati will play the Falcons at Mercedes-Benz Stadium Friday night ...

Cincinnati will play the Falcons at Mercedes-Benz Stadium Friday night

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. — The Atlanta Falcons revealed their second depth chart of the season ahead of the Friday's preseason game vs. the Bengals.

You many notice that it looks fairly similar to last week's when the first unofficial chart was released. Though there are a couple of updates and things to note.


First, do not be alarmed by Bijan Robinson sitting third in the running back's category. This is simply a typical formality for rookies under coach Arthur Smith. Once the they prove themselves further, they'll be moved up. Although, you will note that rookie offensive lineman Matt Bergeron moved into the starter position. That's why I included "typical" because it's not a one-size-fits-all. Bergeron was placed behind Matt Hennessy, but Hennessy isn't yet healthy after suffering a leg injury in earlier this training camp. That could likely be the reason for the unusual rookie jump.

Secondly, there were a few transactions this week that changed up the chart. You won't see Mykal Walker or LaColby Tucker on the table as they were all released this week. Frank Darby is also absent from the list after the Falcons waived the injured wide receiver, but Darby cleared waivers and was placed on the injured reserve. Frank Ginda, Bless Austin, Demone Harris and Delonte Scott have entered the chat after Atlanta added the four defensive players to their training camp roster.

Each week the team will announce a new depth chart. It won't likely change much until the 53-man roster deadline Aug. 29 — then we'll really be cooking with gas.

Pierce Johnson has given the Atlanta Braves exactly what they needed

Small sample sizes can be deceiving, but the small sample sizes of the deadline acquisitions the Atlanta Braves made have looked great so far.

Nicky Lopez has taken full advantage of the two games he has started at the plate, going seven for ten with a double and a home run.

Ozzie Albies is now on the IL, and Vaughn Grissom has been brought up, but still Lopez stepping up as a reliable utility player will go a long way in treading water until Albies returns.

Nicky Lopez stepping has been a fun development, but one that is arguably even more impressive is what we have seen from Pierce Johnson. At the time of this writing, he has gone unscathed in the earned run department since joining the Braves. Over eight appearances and 7.1 IP, he has a 0.00 ERA, 1.50 FIP, eleven strikeouts to three walks, and a slash line against him of .185/.267/.259.

This is a far cry from the 6.00 ERA, 4.55 FIP, and .292/.385/.491 he had this season before being traded to the Braves this season.

We saw some indication that Johnson was trending in the right direction just looking his surface numbers when he was traded. In his twelve appearances prior to being traded he had an ERA of .327 and FIP of 3.09, and nine of those appearances were at home (Coors Field). Hitters were still getting on base hitting .289 and having an OBP of .385, but his slugging against of .356 was much lower than his season total of .491 up to that point.

So, what has changed since Johnson joined the Braves?

First Johnson’s batting average of balls in play (BABIP) against him was insanely high. He had a .412 BABIP against. Even with the league average being up about .009 points from last year due to the limited shift (presumably), a .412 is well above the league average of .305. He was always going to eventually have better results.

Now, he was not getting lucky or unlucky in terms of strand rate. His 70.7 percent through July 23rd was right around league average according to Fangraphs. So, we can gather that strand rate did not factor into a high ERA prior to the trade. However, since he has been traded, his strand rate has been a very high 90.0 percent, pointing to substantial luck in that department (albeit, again, in a very small sample).

So, let’s look and see if there are any other variables that have had an impact.

Just by looking at his xwOBA on all pitches, the month of August he has seen a .288, which is well below his .333 in July, .339 in June, and .361 in May. Remember xwOBA is weighted, so simply moving away from Coors is not the only reason why we have seen a drop.

Now, if we look at his pitch type, we can see that his curveball usage has gone way up. In the month of August he has used his curve 73.1 percent of the time, as opposed to no other month going over 57.3 percent. With it being a small sample size, we will most likely see this usage drop, but hitters are struggling against the pitch with a an xBA of .152 and xSLG of .193.

A large reason for this is that hitters have not been able to hit his curve hard as of late. In the Month of August, hitters are struggling to a hard hit rate of 22.2 percent of the time. In July, they were hitting his curve hard 69.2 percent of the time, and in June 53.8 percent of the time.

Interestingly, hitters are not swinging and missing more on his curve, whether in the zone or out of the zone, so it is not as if their xwOBA is down due to whiffing on the pitch. Johnson’s in zone percentage with his curve is right on par with the rest of the season as well.

His groundball rate is up though. Hitters are hitting his curve into a groundball at a 55.6 percent clip. His second highest month in terms of his curve inducing grounders was in July in which it was only 38.5 percent of the time.

The biggest change seems to be that his vertical movement on his curve has significantly reduced. Every single month his curve has moved vertically less and less. At the start of the year (April) his curve was moving 2.42 ft. Now, in the month of August, it is down to 1.62. In other words, he is tightening up his curve. Interestingly, it seems to be working. His velocity is staying about the same, and his horizontal movement is about the same as it was in June.

Remember how it was stated earlier that in his previous twelve appearances before the trade he was seeing success? Well, this was right around the time his horizontal movement on his curve spiked from 0.18 ft in June to 0.40 ft in July. The Horizontal break more than doubled and stayed there in August (0.33 ft).

In summary

Johnson was already unlucky before he joined the Braves due to his high BABIP, so we knew we would see some improvement. However, we have seen more than just a regression to the mean.

Johnson has figured out his curve is his best pitch and has honed in on making it better. His movement has drastically changed to where is moves much more horizontally and less vertically. This has appeared to allow him to induce quite a few more groundballs and has reduced the hard hit rate against the pitch drastically.

Not only has his curve become much better, he is pitching it far more often as well, resulting in better results. He won’t be able to maintain a 90.0 percent strand rate, but based on what we have seen since he has been a Brave, we should continue to see success.

Overall it was a terrible day for the Atlanta Braves minor league system. They won one of six games as a whole, got shut out in one and had multiple starting pitchers across the organization get rocked in extremely short starts. But, there were a few prospects/former big league players who did have strong showings.

(54-59) Gwinnett Stripers 4, (64-51) Durham Bulls 8

The Stripers offense had their moments as they racked up 11 hits, three of which were of the extra base variety. But, it unfortunately was not enough as they left seven runners on base, went 1-4 with runners in scoring position and hit into a double play. Jesus Aguilar who is in the midst of a 18 for 37 August where he has also walked 11 times in comparison to five strikeouts. There is not an obvious spot for him on the Braves roster as things currently stand, but if he continues hitting like this he is going to force the Braves into finding him a spot. In other news, 2017 11th round pick Drew Lugbauer appeared in his first career AAA game and more then held his own as he hit his 24th home run of the season.

Starting pitcher A.J. Smith Shawver had his third consecutive start in which he gave up three runs. He has struggled as of late with his command as this was his fourth start over his last six in which he walked three or more batters. It is nice to see his strikeout capabilities return though as he has struck out six or more batters in three of his last four starts. Besides Smith Lucas Leutge also came on to pitch a scoreless inning which dropped his ERA to 2.63 which gives Atlanta another depth arm.

(49-58) Mississippi Braves 0, (56-53) Biloxi Shuckers 3

Tuesday’s game had to go down as one of the worst offensive Braves games of the season. They collected just two hits and three walks in comparison to 17 total strikeouts. To make matters worse they got shut down by three pitchers who entered the game with ERA’s north of 5.50. The Braves only had two at bats in which a runner was in scoring position and they left six men on base.

Adam Rangel had another encouraging outing as this was his third straight outing of five or more innings pitched whilst allowing two or fewer runs after a brutal June and July stretch where he allowed 34 runs across 38 ⅔ innings. The bullpen was okay as Peyton Williams and Jake McSteen pitched the final four innings with Williams allowing two earned runs to extend the Shuckers lead to three.

(50-59) Rome Braves 3, (57-46) Hickory Crawdads 9

The Braves really struggled to get anything going as they picked up just five hits and struck out thirteen times. No hitter in their lineup had more than one hit and only two batters reached base multiple times. Ignacio Alvarez continued his very strong season as his batting average now sits at .298 after a 1-4 showing. In the month of August he is currently 17-49, but just one of those base knocks has gone for extra bases.

Halligan has shown flashes this season as highlighted by his 3.00 ERA after his July 3rd start. Since then though his ERA has risen to a 4.60 with last night’s clunker almost raising it a full run from the 3.81 it was after his previous start. After Halligan came J.J. Nierko who also saw his struggles continue as the 25 year old gave up three runs, which now gives him three consecutive appearances in which he’s allowed three or more runs.

(51-57) Augusta GreenJackets 5, (50-55) Fredericksburg Nationals 13

Ambioris Tavarez continues to be a mystery to myself and probably just about every Braves fan. Yes the talent is tantalizing, but his two strikeouts last night bring his total up to 169 on the season. I do understand he is just 19 years old and will be throughout the remainder of the season, but a number like that is a massive red flag. But, on the flip side his two hits and RBI did account for a large portion of the GreenJackets offense. The night as a whole could’ve been much better for the GreenJackets but they left nine runners on base and went just 1-8 with RISP.

I don’t think there is a nice thing that can be said about Vargas’ start today so I am going to refrain from saying anything. Overall Vargas has had an up and down stretch of late. In his last six starts he has three games in which he has allowed a combined 15 runs across 11 ⅓ IP, in his other three games he’s allowed three earned runs in 15 ⅓ IP. Vargas aside, the Braves bullpen didn’t exactly cover themselves in glory either as they gave up an additional five runs across the other 7 ⅓ innings.

(14-34) DSL Braves 3, (20-29) DSL Brewers 6

Carlos Monteverde and Luis Parababire each picked up three hits and scored three runs combined between the two. Besides them though the Braves offense largely did not show as they struck out 11 times and four of their hitters didn’t pick up hits. Starting pitcher Lewis Sifontes struggled badly, throwing just two thirds of an inning and giving up two hits and four earned runs.

(28-22) FCL Braves 11, (21-28) FCL Twins 7

Diego Benitez had the best game amongst Braves hitters going 2-5 with a home run, two RBI’s and a run scored. Douglas Glod extended his small hitting streak to four consecutive games and he has now reached base safely in seven of his last eight games. Glod did not strikeout against the Twins and since a brutal five strikeout game on August 10th, he has only struck out twice. The Braves used seven pitchers with only one pitcher, Adel Dilone, going three innings which led to him picking up the victory.
