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:
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.

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.QUOTE REQUEST

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.
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
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:
At RelyEx, we know first-hand how stressful supply chain problems can be for business owners. Though drayage shipping might seem minor on the surface, it affects every stage of your shipping process.

Denver Nuggets star Jamal Murray will not suit up for Canada in the upcoming FIBA World Cup, Canada Basketball announced on Wednesday.Murray, who attended Canada's training camp earlier this month in Toronto, stated that, after consulting with his team...
Murray, who attended Canada's training camp earlier this month in Toronto, stated that, after consulting with his team and medical staff, it was decided that he needed additional recovery following a long and demanding season.
“When I came into training camp, I wanted to see how my body would respond after a long and demanding season and if I would be physically able to compete at the highest level required for the World Cup,” said Murray.
Murray is two months removed from the end of his NBA season after the Nuggets won their first title in franchise history in June. Serbia's Nikola Jokic, the two-time NBA MVP and Murray's Golden State teammate, is also skipping the World Cup to rest.
The Kitchener, Ont., guard sat out the 2021-22 season while recovering from surgery for an ACL tear.
The World Cup takes place from Aug. 25 to Sept. 10 in the Philippines, Japan and Indonesia.
In order to secure a spot at the 2024 Paris Olympics, Canada must achieve a top-two finish among the Americas teams. Canada hasn't qualified for the Olympics since 2000.
The Canadians, who have been placed in Group H at the World Cup, will play France on Aug. 25, Lebanon on Aug. 27 and Latvia on Aug. 29 in Jakarta, Indonesia. The final phase of the 32-team tournament will be played in Manila, Philippines.
"It’s still a dream of mine to represent Canada at the Olympics, and I will support the team every step of the way as they pursue this goal," said Murray.
While losing the services of Murray, who averaged 20 points and 6.2 assists for the Nuggets last season, is a big blow, the Canadians still boast a stacked roster that includes All-NBA selection Shai Gilgeous-Alexander of the Oklahoma City Thunder, along with Nickeil Alexander-Walker of the Minnesota Timberwolves and RJ Barrett of the New York Knicks.
Canada is in Spain this week to play exhibition matches against Spain on Thursday and the Dominican Republic on Friday.
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — In the midst of 11-on-11 action, tight end Greg Dulcich sprinted off the line of scrimmage and down the middle of the field.
As he found a soft spot in the defense, Dulcich turned and hauled in a pass from Russell Wilson for an intermediate gain before continuing to run down the field.
The catch was one of several Dulcich posted during Tuesday's practice, as he also made a nice catch down the sideline in seven-on-seven action.
Dulcich had multiple catches in Monday's practice as well, including another seam route. And while Dulcich did not have a catch in limited action in Denver's preseason opener, Head Coach Sean Payton explained Tuesday that his role in the offense would evolve as the Broncos begin to game-plan for opponents.
"We're not into specific game-plan plays that would involve certain players," Payton said Tuesday. "He's one of those guys that we'll have packages that are designed [for him]. [That] doesn't mean he gets it, but he'd certainly be a primary [option]. We're still in installation. Today, we're installing another group of third-down plays and another group of red-zone plays. We've already done red zone [and] third down, but not the whole package. Today, they got a little bit more of red zone, and a little bit more of third down. As we get closer to the season, you'll see us customize it a little bit more."
During the offseason, Payton detailed Dulcich's potential to work in the Broncos' "Joker" position, which dated back to Payton's time in New Orleans.
"We use the term 'Joker' where we can get matchups," Payton said in June. "The trick sometimes is trying to predict what you're going to get defensively, if you're either going to get a nickel package or a base package. But man, he can run, he's got good ball skills, and he had one of his better practices today. Then you begin to build on that. Right now, there's an install that's taking place and the players, they go play those spots. When you get into the season, you really get more specific to who's running what route. I think his menu is going to be lengthy in the passing game, and there's enough stuff that we can do in the run game."
As the week begins, Dulcich has made his share of plays. When the Broncos begin to game-plan for the regular season, that impact may only grow.
MAHER HITS PRESSURE FIELD GOALS
In a pressure scenario on Tuesday, the Broncos' field-goal unit delivered.
At the end of the Broncos' two-minute drill during Tuesday's training camp practice, kicker Brett Maher faced a 59-yard attempt with the clock winding down. With his team trailing by three points, Maher sent the kick through the uprights — and several yards beyond.
Several minutes later, after the second-team offense took its turn, Maher drilled another field goal of at least 50 yards.
Head Coach Sean Payton said following practice that Maher had "a good day" on Tuesday, but the veteran will continue to compete despite being the only kicker on Denver's roster.
"We'll go day to day with where we're at with the kickers," Payton said. "… He's competing with himself because he's got 31 other teams [out there]. There are probably seven teams that have a real kicking battle, so he's competing with those guys that come out of those clubs. That doesn't discount us, possibly, if we wanted to bring in another player."
… Highlights of 9-on-7 work included a strong block from fullback Michael Burton, who opened up a hole for his running back.
… Wilson continues to find Jerry Jeudy often, as he connected with his wide receiver twice during an early 7-on-7 period.
… Wide receiver Marquez Callaway made an impressive touchdown catch during red-zone work, as he tiptoed the back line to keep his feet in bounds and record the score.
… Defensively, rookie inside Drew Sanders recorded a pass breakup in 7-on-7 and may have had a tackle for loss in 11-on-11 work.
… Wide receiver Courtland Sutton, cornerback Pat Surtain II and wide receiver Kendall Hinton were among the players to return to practice in some capacity. Payton said nose tackle D.J. Jones remains in the concussion protocol, while safety P.J. Locke is "going to be fine" after being carted off during practice.
… The following players did not practice on Tuesday: cornerbacks K'Waun Williams and Riley Moss; safeties Justin Simmons, Kareem Jackson and Caden Sterns; outside linebacker Nik Bonitto; tight ends Chris Manhertz and Tommy Hudson; right tackle Mike McGlinchey; defensive lineman Forrest Merrill; and wide receiver Brandon Johnson.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Just over 10 months since he suffered the knee injury that ended his 2022 season, Denver Broncos running back Javonte Williams is set to take a significant step in his recovery this weekend and play in a game.
Broncos coach Sean Payton confirmed after Tuesday's training camp practice what Williams has been hoping to hear, that Williams will play at least some in the Broncos' preseason game Saturday night against the San Francisco 49ers in Santa Clara, Calif.
"He's doing well, we'll have a plan -- I plan on playing him,'' Payton said. "We'll see pitch count-wise towards the end of the week. We'll be smart, but I do see him playing.''
Williams, a second-round draft pick by the Broncos in 2021 and an All-Rookie team member that season, suffered a torn ACL and LCL in his right knee in the Broncos' Oct. 2 loss to the Raiders. He said he was initially given a timetable of 12-to-18 months to return to the field.
Williams has worked furiously throughout the offseason to try and be ready for the regular-season opener -- Sept. 10 against the Raiders, in Denver -- and had made so much progress through spring and early summer that he was not placed on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list to start camp and has participated fully since.
Williams was held out of the Broncos' preseason opener this past Friday night in Arizona.
At the start of training camp, Williams said he was more confident than ever he could make the opener.
"It was hard at first ... but each week my confidence got bigger and bigger,'' Williams said then. "Now that I'm back on the field, I think this is the highest that [my confidence] has ever been.''
During the team's offseason program, Payton consistently offered an optimistic outlook about Williams' return.
The Broncos also showed plenty of confidence in Williams' return throughout the offseason given that they did not use one of their five picks on a deep running back class in the April draft and eschewed a long list of veteran backs available in free agency to sign Samaje Perine, who hasn't had more than 95 carries in a season since he was a rookie in 2017
Williams' powerful, bowl-the-defender-over style made him one of the team's most popular young players on the way to 903 rushing yards in 2021. He had rushed for 204 yards in three and a half games last season before his injury.

Gyoza pizza probably isn’t something you’ve seen — or eaten — before. But it is, in a way, exactly what it sounds like: a deconstructed dumpling that uses fried gyoza dough as the crust and an assortment of traditional (and not-so-traditional) dumplings, fillings and sauces as toppings.
“People here in America love dumplings … we serve a lot of gyoza at (Daughter Thai),” said Ramintra Korkerd, the manager of Gyoza Pizza. “You guys also love pizza. So, we thought about combining (them) together. It looks like pizza, it’s the same idea.”
For instance, Spicy Tobiko Gyoza is made with a water pan-fried crispy skirt gyoza, along with a cheese blend, spicy mayo, a tobiko and seaweed sprinkle, shitake mushrooms, and pork, or chicken. It is served with sweet black soy sauce, cilantro ginger sauce and chili oil.
The concept is the brainchild of the owners of Daughter Thai, a popular four-year-old restaurant in the River North Art District. But Gyozo Pizza operates entirely, for now, out of one of the many “ghost kitchens” that sprung up during the pandemic for companies that only do delivery service. As a result, the only way to try it is through food delivery apps like Uber Eats and Doordash.
“We don’t want to serve it in-house yet,” Korkerd said. “We just want to try the market first, which is going (well), but we want to target more people to know about us first.”
Gyozo Pizza is located inside the commissary-style ghost kitchen at 810 Vallejo St. in Denver under the same roof as more than a dozen other restaurants. Now that the pandemic is over, these facilities are being used partly to help some restaurants expand business through delivery, and partly as a low-risk way to launch and test new ideas, according to Korkerd.
“It’s been going pretty good, people love it,” Korkerd said. “We’re just gonna take it day by day.”
Based on the market response over the next few months, Daughter Thai’s owners may decide to open Gyozo Pizza in its own location (the restaurant doesn’t have the kitchen space to add the pizzas to its menu), she said.
And Korkerd is optimistic. “We have something like this in Thailand,” she said. “We want people in America and Denver to try something new from Asia, and we don’t see this in any way yet.”
