Today, more than 80% of global shipping involves containers. They're packed with everything from personal storage items in dry containers to heavy machinery on flat rack containers. For business owners shipping products, getting a container from point A to point B requires precise planning and high-level tracking. But that's easier said than done when global supply chains become over-congested, leading to loading time issues and delays.
That's bad news for business owners who are already under a massive amount of stress. The truth is that container storage delays can cripple a business, but there's a viable solution: drayage brokers in El Paso, TX like RelyEx. Drayage companies provide unique solutions to minimize demurrage and help ensure the successful delivery of your freight.
With more than 30 combined years of experience and a solutions-oriented team, RelyEx has quickly become the first choice for streamlined, efficient drayage services. To understand the true value of RelyEx's offerings in the global logistics industry, it helps to understand first what drayage is and why it's used.
If you're a seasoned business owner who uses port drayage to transport your products, you know exactly how important the service can be. But if you were to poll a group of random people, you may get five different definitions of the term "drayage." That begs the question, how is one of the most crucial steps in the supply chain and most vital components of global trade such a confusing concept? When you break it down, it's not too difficult to grasp.
Drayage, by definition, means the transportation of freight from an ocean port to another destination. Today, drayage is also used to describe the process of transporting products and goods over short distances or over "the first mile."
While drayage often means short-distance movements during the supply chain process, it's primarily used in the container shipping space. Drayage loads usually have arrival and departure points in the same city and don't include long-haul, national transportation.
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. 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.QUOTE REQUEST
RelyEx was created because our founders saw a need in the logistics space for more reliability and efficiency.

Based in the port city of El Paso, RelyEx has a keen understanding of the challenges of managing the inbound and outbound flow of containers. Our team of container drayage experts provides your business with unique solutions to nuanced shipping problems, minimizing demurrage and ensuring the successful delivery of your freight.
Demurrage is a charge issued by a port, carrier, or railroad company for storing containers that do not load and unload their cargo promptly. Once the daily limit of free time is exceeded, shippers are charged daily demurrage fees until their cargo is shipped. Though different ports have different policies, charges can range from $75 to $150 per container, per day, for a set number of days. Additional demurrage fees are incurred if a shipper exceeds the port's parameters.
Even when shippers maintain a tight schedule for unloading freight, external factors can play an uncontrollable part. Typically, shipping mistakes caused by human error trigger the most demurrage charges. Some of the most common causes of demurrage include:
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. And when inevitable hurdles manifest, RelyEx propels you over the proverbial roadblocks with a proactive mindset and a passion for challenging projects. We believe that all problems have a solution, and our unique vantage point allows us to provide first-hand solutions to customers in a wide array of industries.

EL PASO, TEXAS: Border shelters in El Paso, Texas are already being "overwhelmed" by the vast numbers of migrants they are facing, even before the end of Title 42 later this week, officials who work at the shelters tell Fox News Digital."It's just a very overwhelming volume that we're seeing right now.

EL PASO, TEXAS: Border shelters in El Paso, Texas are already being "overwhelmed" by the vast numbers of migrants they are facing, even before the end of Title 42 later this week, officials who work at the shelters tell Fox News Digital.
"It's just a very overwhelming volume that we're seeing right now. So I don't think it's that we have a problem with processing migrants. It's just migrants in this capacity, the systems being overwhelmed, the shelters are being overwhelmed. Travel is being overwhelmed," Nicole Reulet, director of marketing at the Rescue Mission of El Paso said.
El Paso has been one of the hardest hit areas of the border. This week, officials launched a "targeted enforcement operation" after there were over 2,000 migrants camped out on the streets.
It's reflective of a situation border-wide, where sectors have seen enormous amounts of migrants coming to the border ahead of the end of the Title 42 public health order later this week.
BORDER PATROL APPREHENDS OVER 10,000 MIGRANTS A DAY AHEAD OF TITLE 42'S END, HIGHEST EVER RECORDED
The order has been used since March 2020 by both the Trump and Biden administration to expel hundreds of thousands of migrants quickly due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, with the order set to end, migrants have began making their way to the border. Fox News reported on Wednesday that there have been more than 10,000 encounters a day across the border.
Administration officials have warned migrants not to make the dangerous journey north, and have also increased funding to NGO partners who assist when migrants are released into the interior.
But NGO officials who Fox spoke to say that they have been facing significantly large numbers for months.
"For us, this started in August of 2022 and then it never did come to a stop, but it became much more manageable up until about two weeks ago," John Martin, deputy director for the Opportunity Center for the Homeless, told Fox News Digital.
He said that things started to change when one day there were 70 migrants in an alley near the center, which they moved into the parking lot but couldn’t bring inside the center as they were at capacity.
"The following day that number grew to 150. And within about a week it grew to over 800," he said.
"The fact of the matter is we wanted to maintain our mission, and that is to work with all. But we got to a point where we simply had too many people and it just wasn't conceivable," he said.
Reulet said that she expected her organization to be at capacity by Thursday -- and noted the toll it is taking on staff.
BIDEN ADMIN TALKS ‘TOUGHER’ ON BORDER AHEAD OF TITLE 42'S END – BUT MIGRANTS AREN'T LISTENING
"Even though there have been some drops in numbers to give us some breathing room, our staff is running on fumes just because of the sheer number of people there are to serve," she said.
Martin said that there was a lot of uncertainty as to what is coming next.
BORDER PATROL CLEARS WAY FOR MORE MIGRANT RELEASES TO CITY STREETS, SOURCES SAY
"I've heard different numbers, but the numbers are all staggering, even though they may vary depending upon: are we looking at 500 a day or are we looking at a thousand or are we looking at 1500? Nobody has the answer to that so I’ve sort of jokingly started saying that the first volunteer I need is somebody with a crystal ball that can actually tell me what's going to happen."
He said that as much as they have prepared as best they can, it may not be enough depending on what happens next.

"I will tell you, because of the staggering numbers that could be involved, that no matter how prepared we are, we may not be prepared enough. Because we simply don't know what's coming in," he said.

EL PASO, Texas (KFOX14) — A controversial bill that would require transgender athletes in public colleges to compete on teams that align with their sex assigned at birth is one step closer to making its way to Gov. Greg Abbott's desk for approval.
Senate Bill 15, which recently passed in the House with amendments, will need to be accepted by the Senate before it is sent to Gov. Abbott.
"Senate Bill 15 is about protecting women from undo physical harm and making sure that all athletic competitions are safe," said House sponsor of the bill Rep. Valoree Swanson, R- Spring.
Texas lawmakers who are bringing forward the new bill said it would help provide an even playing field in college sports for cisgender people.
“Ensuring that not a single woman loses a scholarship a roster sport or a second of playing time to a biological male," said Swanson.
Jhovani Carrillo reports on El Pasoans react to controversial bill affecting transgender college athletes
KFOX14 spoke to El Pasoans about the bill.
“I do think that men are born with certain biological advantages that make them stronger in certain ways," said a man named Michael.

Meanwhile, people who are against the bill say it's just another avenue to discriminate against trans individuals.
"I think it’s discrimination against trans people," said Carolina Tovar.
“This is just another way for them to be able to not only discriminate against us but also to try to invalidate us," said Andi Tiscareno, youth services coordinator and administrative assistant for the Borderland Rainbow Center.
Tiscareno said if the governor signs the bill, it would just be another tool to exclude transgender individuals.
“What should be done is to create new standards, to create new policies that allow for people like us to be able to exist," added Tiscareno.
“I think there could be different regulations that can take into account instead of just their gender identity," said Tovar.
The bill comes after Abbott signed a similar law for high school transgender students nearly two years ago.
According to a limited list by Outsports, 36 openly transgender athletes nationwide have competed in college sports, including at community colleges and junior colleges, in the past decade.
Tiscareno said while there are more transgender people openly playing sports, it's still a very small amount, which is why she doesn't understand why lawmakers presented the bill.
"They are creating solutions to problems that don't exist," said Tiscareno.
KFOX14 reached out to the University of Texas System and the NCAA to find out how many trans athletes are currently competing in college sports but did not get a response.

Bankrate’s insurance editorial team began the search for the cheapest companies in El Paso by analyzing rate data from Quadrant Information Services for the best carriers in Texas. Based on our assessment, Geico, State Farm and Nationwide offer the cheapest average rates in the state without sacrificing coverage options, customer service or financial strength.
We rounded out our list of the best cheap auto insurance companies in El Paso by looking at customer satisfaction scores from J.D. Power, financial strength ratings from AM Best, available discounts, breadth of coverage and — of course — affordability. Using that information, we rated each company on a five-point scale to assign Bankrate Scores. Our Bankrate Scores may help shoppers quickly identify whether a cheap carrier in El Paso could meet their coverage needs.
|Insurance company||Bankrate Score||J.D. Power score (Texas)||Average annual premium for full coverage||Average annual premium for minimum coverage|
Geico offers average rates below the El Paso average, plus policyholders may be able to lower their premiums with additional discounts for students, professional affiliation, military service, telematics participation and more. Geico’s robust website and mobile app allow for easy policy management on the go, but the carrier does not underwrite its own home or life insurance, so it may not be the best option for shoppers looking to bundle policies with a single underwriter.

State Farm has over 40 insurance agents in El Paso, which may contribute to its high J.D. Power satisfaction score in the region. El Paso drivers may be able to build a more robust policy with State Farm with potential endorsements for ridesharing, car rental and travel expenses, and roadside assistance. However, the carrier does not offer gap insurance, and accident forgiveness coverage must be earned with demonstrated safe driving.

Nationwide may not be the cheapest carrier on our list, but it offers a broad range of coverage options, and its average full coverage rates are still below the city average. You may be able to personalize your coverage with accident forgiveness, roadside assistance, vanishing deductible and a total loss deductible waiver. The company also offers several discounts that might help you lower your premium, such as potential savings for being accident-free, a good student, having a vehicle with certain safety equipment and signing up for automatic payments.

Mercury is a smaller insurance company that only writes policies in 11 states, including Texas. As a small carrier, Mercury does not offer as many endorsements as some larger competitors, but it does offer rideshare coverage and roadside assistance. Low-mileage drivers may particularly appreciate Mercury’s RealDrive pay-per-mile insurance option. Mercury is not scored in the Texas region of J.D. Power’s customer satisfaction study, so you may want to speak with existing policyholders about their experience before purchasing coverage.

Esurance is a digital insurance company backed by Allstate, with some of the lowest average rates in El Paso for auto insurance. As a digital company, Esurance has an easy-to-use website and mobile app that may appeal to drivers who prioritize virtual policy management. The company offers standard coverage types as well as several additional options like roadside assistance and gap insurance. Esurance did not rank on the 2022 J.D. Power study and Allstate came in below the segment average, so you may want to speak with existing policyholders before purchasing coverage.
