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 Boston, MA 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.

QUOTE REQUEST

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

Mayor Michelle Wu held a press conference Thursday to announce details about Pride Month events being held across Boston next month.

"Today is a good day," she said, "because we have a number of exciting announcements about Pride here in Boston."

It all kicks off on June 1.

"As a city, we're looking forward to celebrating at City Hall Plaza on June 1st," Wu said. "After three long years, once again we'll be able to have an in-person flag raising to kick off Pride Month in Boston."

They will also be unveiling the Portraits of Pride art exhibition that day, which will live at City Hall Plaza for the entire month.

And on June 10, the Pride Parade will return for the first time since 2019, which is expected to draw 1 million people or more. It will kick off at 11 a.m. at Copley Square.

"Bringing our Pride parade and Festival back is going to be better than ever," said Adrianna Boulin, president of Boston Pride for the People. "People are going to feel included, they're going to be able to access our events and we're going to be able to connect and respect each other."

Boulin said the Pride Festival, an all ages event, will start at 12 p.m. on the Boston Common with a main stage, and a 21-plus event with a second stage, beer garden and vendors will be held at City Hall.

Mariangely Solis Cervera, the city's chief of equity and inclusion, announced that the inaugural Amplify GSA Summit will be held this Sunday at Boston Arts Academy. Amplify GSA is an effort to support Boston Public Schools in creating safe, inclusive spaces for LGBTQ+ youth.

Wu said the city is also hoping that people will register at boston.gov/blockparty to host Pride related events in their neighborhoods.

There is still time to register for the parade and the festival, organizers said. Information on how to register can be found at bostonprideforthepeople.org.

"We just can't wait to celebrate with all of you, so come out," Boulin said.

SatanCon, the Satanic Temple convention, comes to Boston this weekend

BOSTON - Hundreds of members of The Satanic Temple will be in Boston this weekend for SatanCon and organizers say it will be the largest satanic gathering in history.

The sold-out three-day event at the Marriott Copley Place will include satanic rituals, entertainment and discussion panels. There will also be a counter response. A Christian event called Revive Boston! will be held in the city this weekend as well. A truck with a Christian Action Network billboard was parked outside the Marriott Friday.

The Satanic Temple organizers say they do not believe in Satan and shouldn't be confused with other satanic religions. Instead, the group says it advocates for the separation of church and state and empathy for all.

"It's about supporting human rights. It's about supporting women's bodily autonomy. It's about freedom of religion, freedom from religion," SatanCon attendee Richard-Lael Lillard told WBZ-TV. "Most don't believe in Satan, not a literal Satan. It's not some 1980s horror film."

"I understand the confusion, the fear. I really do, but at the same time, we're a very misunderstood group," said Suzanna Plum, who is in town from Pennsylvania for her first SatanCon. "We're just like everybody else. We pay our taxes, we want our communities to improve and do better. We love our kids just like everybody else. We're just normal people, we just believe a little differently,"

The milestone event, which marks the 10-year anniversary of The Satanic Temple, is dedicated to Boston Mayor Michelle Wu after the group wasn't allowed to deliver a satanic invocation at Boston City Hall.

"Satanism is a very misunderstood religion," said Dex Desjardins with The Satantic Temple. "A lot of people think we just picked the name Satan out of a hat to troll Christians or something, but we honestly don't really care what anyone else thinks about us. So, we're not doing anything to troll anybody."

The mayor's office responded in a statement that the mayor does not decide who does the invocation, adding "Neither Mayor Wu nor the City of Boston are sponsoring or affiliated with SatanCon 2023. Mayor Wu will be out of town this weekend."

Boston's Christian community is responding. Hundreds of Christians are expected to hit the streets to worship and pray, and some Catholic churches are passing out prayer cards.

"God loves everybody. God loves everybody whether you're a Satanist or whatever background you might be," said Tim Nee with Revive Boston! "Satan is a deceiver. Anything other than Jesus is not the truth. So, I feel bad for these people, they're deceived like anybody else, but the love of God is extended to them."

A woman staying at the Marriott for a medical convention says she is relieved she's heading home Friday.

"I think it's a little odd but they've been very hospitable to people," she told WBZ-TV. "I just think people's opinions are going to get out of hand and I hope it doesn't."

"I don't want to be judgmental, but it is unheard of," said Betty Silva in Boston. "I hope they respect the churches' boundaries."

"I'm just more curious, like, what are they practicing or what the beliefs are," said Jennifer Vo in Boston.

SatanCon organizers say, given past threats like when The Satanic Temple porch in Salem was set on fire last June, they will have robust security at the three-day event.

Both Revive Boston! and SatanCon will run through Sunday.

Here are the best places to get a croissant in Greater Boston

Across Greater Boston, you’ll find plenty of bakeries and cafes where you can stop by in the morning, grab the crescent-shaped treat, and enjoy it with a cup of coffee.

You don’t need to venture to Paris to get the perfect croissant. Across Greater Boston, you’ll find plenty of bakeries and cafes where you can stop by in the morning, grab the crescent-shaped treat, and enjoy it with a cup of coffee. Whether the ideal croissant for you is plain, sprinkled with almonds, or filled with pistachio paste, the baked good can make a difference in your day.

We asked Boston.com readers for their favorite place to get a croissant, and we received over 100 recommendations. Colette Bakery, with locations in Medford and Melrose, earned the title of first place winner, garnering 14% of the vote. And it’s no wonder — their croissants are airy and crisp, with a caramelized buttery flavor. Speaking to co-owner Nathalie Beddiar, she told us about some of her earliest memories of having a croissant.

“My first croissant, I had it the first time I had teeth,” Nathalie said. She laughed, “When you get your first tooth, you get your first croissant in France. I’m not from a baker family. I remember, every Saturday or Sunday, I would go with my father to get croissants when I was a kid.”

Below, you’ll find a reader-recommended guide for where to find the best croissants in Greater Boston, ranging from ones filled with chocolate to Gruyère cheese. The next time that you’re craving a freshly made croissant, look to our guide and interactive map of 39 local bakeries and restaurants, and find a destination near you. We’ve excluded national chains like Au Bon Pain and Panera Bread, most of which received only one vote, from our list. Scroll down to read our list, and we promise you’ll be dreaming of breakfast pastries for days to come.

Step into this sophisticated spot in Needham, and you’ll immediately smell the fresh baked goods and coffee. French Press Bakery & Cafe serves up artisan croissants in a variety of flavors, from European butter to French-imported chocolate, and classics like almond and the applewood smoked ham with Swiss cheese. Described by owner Jay Spencer as a cafe with a “traditional European experience,” you’ll see bakers preparing items on site. Reader Ziran S. from Needham said, “The oversized buttery croissants are flaky and buttery on the outside, with more buttery and [chewy] and puffy layers for contrast in texture on the inside. The perfect bite is light and not greasy.” French Press took 5% of the vote.

74 Chapel St., Needham

Imaginative croissants are being conjured up at Third Cliff Bakery in Jamaica Plain, which began as a roving vehicle at the Rose Kennedy Greenway in 2015. They currently serve flavors such as a savory vegan croissant, made with garlic scapes, thyme, and rosemary, to be enjoyed with a cup of coconut cold brew coffee. You can also try their kouign-amann, which incorporates lavender sugar, or the “family” croissant, in the shape of a rosette. Reader Jen C. from Watertown said, “Buttery, flaky goodness! And the flavor combos? You’ve got the classic chocolate, but then there’s cheddar and kimchi, guava cream cheese, and rotating flavors (… recently, the Cuban[o] with a pickle in the middle!). Their vegan orange cardamom ‘morning bun’ will … keep [you] coming back for more.” Third Cliff earned 8% of the vote.

3531 Washington St. Suite 103, Jamaica Plain

You might not know that when you visit Hickey’s Wine & Spirits in Milford, you’ll be able to find a hidden bakery, B. Food tucked away, in the shop. Here, croissant flavors, which include the almond and the chocolate and raspberry, can be purchased if you need a quick bite or want to surprise a friend. According to co-owner Daniel Bourget, the croissant dough is made from a mixture of white flour from King Arthur and all purpose flour from Ground Up, a company from Hadley. In the lamination process, they use Cabot butter, and they perform three simple folds. The result is delectable. “You have a crispy, crunchy outside and soft interior. When you smell it, it’s almost like brown butter,” Bourget said.

Wilma from Milford said, “The dough is tender and [the] crust is flaky and crispy; the plain ones are great with jams or to make [a] ham and cheese croissant, which they also have and is excellent. Their chocolate croissant is melt in your mouth delicious!” B. Food took 9% of the vote.

396 E Main St., Milford

Opening a shop in the middle of a pandemic, Nathalie and Franck Beddiar took a chance when they debuted Colette Bakery in Medford. The cozy spot, serving traditional French bread and pastries, offers a light, plain croissant, as well as one topped with sliced almonds and filled with almond cream, among other varieties. When you enter the simple bakery, you’ll be able to see pastry chefs fashioning bread and raisin danishes through a large glass window. Nathalie told us that the croissants are reminiscent of what you would taste in France, using French butter and flour.

“It’s very flakey, and you have the [taste of] butter in your mouth, all the time,” Nathalie said. She added, “Sometimes, people want to add sugar and many other things. It loses all of the taste of the croissant. That’s why we’re different: we use an authentic, traditional way to make the croissant.” On the weekends, they offer savory croissants. “We do the Parisian croissant, with ham, béchamel sauce, and cheese. Or the chicken curry croissant, with caramelized onion.”

Colette Bakery has two locations, in Medford and Melrose, and they plan to expand to Back Bay in the fall.

Reader Scott S. from Medford said Colette is a “true, authentic French bakery! Our family loves all of their trays! Mine is the plain croissant! My wife loves the apple tart and turnovers. My kids love their chocolate croissants! Never disappointed. The line outside can be long, but so worth it!”

Multiple locations

Quebrada Baking Company: This family-run bakery makes sweet croissants in flavors like raspberry, apricot, apple, and cinnamon almond. But you’ll also want to look to their savory ones, such as the broccoli and cheese, mushroom and cheese, and spinach and cheese. Multiple locations

Readers say: “It’s not even close. Their chocolate croissant has ruined all other chocolate croissants in the area for me. The crunchy [outer] layer, the chewy inner layer, the extra large helping of decadent chocolate — it’s baking perfection. Pro tip: if you see them unloading a newly baked batch into the display case, change your plans and get two. One to enjoy while it’s still warm, and one to give to a friend, to spread the good croissant word (or for yourself for tomorrow). —Bob S., Reading

PB Boulangerie Bistro: If you’re eager to sit down with a tomato tart or oysters gratinée, visit this bustling bistro when it reopens in early June, but their boulangerie features items like the plain croissant, the chocolate almond, and also a delicious pain au chocolat. 15 Lecount Hollow Rd., South Wellfleet

Readers say: “Best croissant outside of Paris. It is exactly as a croissant should be, not doughy, with crisp layers on the outside. You are a short bike ride away from the Cape Cod National Seashore and one of the most beautiful stretches of beaches in the world. You can enjoy your croissant with a cup of hot chocolate sitting on the top of the dunes.” —Donna M., Natick

Red Sox move struggling Nick Pivetta to bullpen role

The Boston Red Sox have moved struggling pitcher Nick Pivetta to the bullpen, where he will work as a multi-inning reliever.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora announced the decision after Wednesday's victory over the Seattle Mariners, saying that the move was partly prompted by Boston's recent influx of healthy starting pitchers.

"It's where we're at," Cora told reporters. "We're getting healthy. We have a lot of starters."

The Red Sox have benefited from solid starting pitching by Brayan Bello, who had seven strikeouts over five innings Wednesday to win his third straight outing, and James Paxton, who had nine strikeouts in five innings last Friday in his first major league appearance in two years.

Bello and Paxton have fortified a rotation that already includes Chris Sale, Corey Kluber and Tanner Houck, leaving Pivetta as the odd man out.

"I'm going to focus on helping the team achieve our goals," Pivetta told reporters, according to MLB.com. "I'm gonna go out there and do my job and throw up zeros and help this team win. I just don't think I make this about me. I've just got to go out and focus."

Pivetta, who is 3-3 with a 6.30 ERA in eight starts this season, has pitched exclusively as a starter since joining the Red Sox in 2020. The right-hander made 17 relief appearances with the Philadelphia Phillies in 2019, and Cora said the Red Sox hope he will "dominate" in his new role.

"I've got to pitch better and I've got to go and start and do that right there," Pivetta said. "The better I do out of the bullpen, the more I can help the team win and move us towards our overall goal of winning the World Series. I think that's what's most important."

Mariners turn in 2nd straight atypical pitching performance

BOSTON -- The Mariners were again ambushed at Fenway Park on Wednesday, but with a far more patient yet persistent Red Sox approach, and it led to the shortest non-injury start from Marco Gonzales in four years.In a 12-3 loss that dropped Seattle back under .500 (21-22), Gonzales was tagged for eight earned runs, two shy ...

BOSTON -- The Mariners were again ambushed at Fenway Park on Wednesday, but with a far more patient yet persistent Red Sox approach, and it led to the shortest non-injury start from Marco Gonzales in four years.

In a 12-3 loss that dropped Seattle back under .500 (21-22), Gonzales was tagged for eight earned runs, two shy of a career high, on two walks and eight hits, including a homer, exiting with two outs in the second inning at 66 pitches.

Seattle’s bullpen also had its struggles:

Amid some brutally windy and chilly conditions, it was an all-around uncharacteristic pitching performance from a staff that has been one of MLB’s best -- these past two days notwithstanding -- and it led to their most lopsided loss since last July 22 in Houston.

“We've let things get away from us here the last couple nights,” Mariners manager Scott Servais said. “But the core of our team is our pitching. They've got to keep us in the game, keep it under control early, and we just didn't do that [the] last two nights.”

The eight earned runs from Gonzales were two shy of a career high, dating to a June 2019 outing, and the 12 total were Seattle’s second most of the season, behind only the April 11 loss at Wrigley Field in which they blew a seven-run lead.

Wednesday’s loss snapped a stretch of four straight starts in which the Mariners won behind Gonzales, who aside from an eight-run (five earned) outing in Toronto on April 30, carried a 2.83 ERA over 28 2/3 innings the past six weeks. He’s been a quiet beacon of consistency.

“I'm not going to make excuses for my performance,” Gonzales said. “I feel like they had a good game plan against me. I didn't execute the way I wanted to. The result is what it is. I'm not going to blame the weather.”

One night after the Red Sox jumped all over Luis Castillo for four runs in the first and seven total (five earned), they showed a far more patient -- and characteristic -- approach against Gonzales, forcing him to throw 37 pitches in the opening frame and generating baserunners deep in counts.

In the first, Gonzales nearly escaped a bases-loaded jam with only one run allowed in the inning, after inducing a flyout from Kiké Hernández and pushing Pablo Reyes to a full count. But Reyes ripped a 109 mph double off the Green Monster for two runs on a fastball at the upper rail but lower than where Gonzales intended.

Then in the second, Gonzales gave up a double to Alex Verdugo and a two-run homer to Justin Turner over the Green Monster, via a hanging curveball, on consecutive pitches. He then walked Rob Refsnyder, was plunked on his right leg on a comebacker that went for a single from Masataka Yoshida, then a single through the hole into right to Hernández, which ended his night.

“With how they came out yesterday against Luis, I thought that I was going to get a little bit more of that today,” Gonzales said. “I wasn't anticipating it to that level. They had a good game plan coming out, like I said, they were hunting what they wanted to hunt. I felt like I just didn't get a chance to settle in and execute.”

Gonzales and the Mariners will be happy to get out of Fenway, especially following Wednesday’s cold and windy conditions, and move on from a ballpark where they’ve lost six of seven dating back to last year and have been outscored 55-35 in that stretch.

Now it’s on to Atlanta, where the first-place Braves await in a weekend of likely sellouts in what will be one of their more significant road series of this still young season.
