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

When it comes to shipping logistics, it only takes one mistake by a mediocre worker to disrupt your business. That's why, at RelyEx, we pride ourselves on forming and nurturing relationships with carriers who match our standards of care. Our founding partner started his career transporting freight for companies as an on-demand carrier. He uses that knowledge to maximize the resources of our carriers so that our customer's expectations aren't just met - they're exceeded.
Based in the port city of Tucson, 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.
Customers choose RelyEx because:
Some drayage brokers don't care how customers feel about their service as long as they sign a contract and get paid. As a solutions-oriented team, RelyEx takes the opposite approach. We're motivated by the opportunity to overachieve for our customers and to provide them with the best logistics experience possible. With professional experience as carriers and shippers ourselves, we know the roadblocks and challenges you're facing. We excel at mapping out the best plans of action to solve those problems. But that's just the start.
Our tracking experts monitor and manage every aspect of your drayage shipment from booking to delivery, 24/7. Once booked, we look for the availability of your containers hourly once they're at port. When they arrive, our team acts quickly to access your storage containers when they're available.
Plus, RelyEx ensures your company's requirements are met by the carrier during loading and delivery and provide necessary documentation as fast as possible. With real-time tracking updates and access to our customer service professionals, your team has complete visibility throughout the shipping process.
Over the years, RelyEx has built a strong network of drayage carriers, transloading locations, and container storage spaces to provide you with the best possible options to match your drayage service needs. We know that searching for quality service presents an added layer of complexity and stress to our customers. That's why we work hard to take that off your plate by connecting you with our reliable shipping partners.
With a background moving freight as an on-demand carrier, our founding partner understands how to maximize the resources and equipment of our carriers to match your needs.
Like other industries, the global logistics space is complex. Mistakes will be made, and problems will happen. With those truths in mind, RelyEx has built its reputation as problem solvers. Unlike other drayage companies, we don't shy away from this industry's complexities because we take pride in solving problems. Even better, we aim to do what's needed to avoid those problems altogether.
As your logistics partner, we will provide your company with accurate, transparent, and prompt communication. If there are unexpected issues, we'll notify you immediately and will provide several options to remedy the problem. We even offer custom reporting for large clients who need at-the-moment updates and quick access to shipment documentation.
Why let the unpredictability of your industry dictate your success? With a background working in manufacturing, our founders are familiar with the demands of managing production schedules and sales orders. That experience makes it abundantly clear to us that every business and industry is different. If you struggle with seasonal surges or other factors, our team supports your business with a mapped-out plan and schedule, so you stay ahead of the game.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. 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.

Bijan Robinson, a Tucson local, is sending his childhood team to the Arizona Bowl game.
TUCSON, Ariz. — Atlanta Falcons running back Bijan Robinson is a Tucson local, and he's showing some love to his childhood team, the Tucson Falcons. He surprised them with 400 tickets to the Barstool Sports Arizona Bowl.
Together with their coaches and parents, the young athletes are going to fill up an entire section in the north endzone this weekend.
The Bijan Robinson Foundation purchased 200 tickets for the Falcons, and the Barstool Sports Arizona Bowl matched that donation with another 200 tickets.
“I hope this opportunity to see a bowl game in person fuels their dreams to play at a high level,” said Robinson.
In his youth, Robinson played for the Tucson Falcons. Now, in his first year in the NFL, he's a two-time Arizona Bowl Player of the Year.

“Bijan [Robinson] is a fantastic person not to mention a generational talent,” said Del Arvayo, Barstool Sports Arizona Bowl Chief Operations Officer. “It’s been an honor to work with him and his foundation to recognize the talent in high school football and inspire these young athletes to one day play in a bowl game.”
The 2023 Barstool Sports Arizona Bowl at Arizona Stadium in Tucson will feature the Toledo Rockies vs the Wyoming Cowboys. It will air at 2 p.m. MST on Dec. 30 on Barstool TV and the CW Network.

No. 4 Arizona, after an arduous non-conference slate that includes losses in two of its past three games, will begin Pac-12 play Friday night against host Cal in Berkeley.
The Wildcats (9-2) are expected to mostly roll through the final season of the Pac-12, entering the week as the only ranked team in the conference. Arizona spent two weeks in December at the top spot in the polls before losing to now-No. 1 Purdue in Indianapolis on Dec. 16 and falling in double overtime to then-No. 14 Florida Atlantic in Las Vegas on Saturday.
Despite the loss to FAU, Arizona stayed at No. 4 in The Associated Press poll in advance of the game at Cal (4-7).
"There's no shame in losing to Purdue," Wildcats coach Tommy Lloyd said. "There's no shame in losing to Florida Atlantic."
Arizona posted non-conference victories against Duke (in Durham, N.C.), Alabama (in Phoenix), Wisconsin (in Tucson, Ariz.) and Michigan State (Palm Desert, Calif.).
All four of those opponents were in kenpom.com's top 21 team ratings entering the week.
Lloyd hopes that challenging his team early will pay dividends late in the NCAA Tournament.
"That's why we set up this schedule," he said. "I didn't set up this schedule to go undefeated. If our guys found a way to win all the games, I would have been really proud of them, but I am super proud of them."
North Carolina transfer Caleb Love has emerged as the team's leading scorer (16.5 points per game). All five starters average at least 12 points per game for the Wildcats, who ranked second nationally in scoring (92.5) through Wednesday's games.
Oumar Ballo (12.9 points, 8.1 rebounds per game) has been playing his best basketball, combining for 29 points and 33 rebounds in the past two games.
Cal is coming off a 71-67 home victory over UC San Diego on Dec. 20. The Bears rallied to win after squandering a 26-point lead and falling behind by three.
"A lot of teams in that situation would fold," Cal guard Jalen Cone said.
"I think we did a good job of keeping each other lifted up and playing through adversity and staying together. We know that we're about to get into conference play, and things are going to get tough."
First-year Cal coach Mark Madsen has the Bears playing at a much slower pace than Arizona, but his team is getting healthier -- and that includes the return of Devin Askew in the most recent game. Askew, who last season averaged 15.5 points, had missed five weeks with an injury.
Jaylon Tyson averages a team-high 19.4 points, while Fardaws Aimaq contributes a double-double with 16.9 points and 10.7 rebounds. Cone is at 16.3 points per game.
Arizona has dominated the recent history of the series, winning the past 13 meetings. The last 10 victories have been by double digits, with seven coming by at least 20 points.

BERKELEY – The California men's basketball team begins its final Pac-12 Conference slate Friday night when it hosts No. 4 Arizona at Haas Pavilion. The action gets underway at 7:30 p.m. PST on the Pac-12 Network.
It's a basketball doubleheader in Berkeley on Friday as the Cal women will host No. 9 Stanford at 2 p.m. in the 100th Battle of the Bay.
INSIDE THE MATCHUP Fourth-ranked Arizona (9-2) has won 13 consecutive meetings with Cal dating back to March 3, 2016. The Bears' most recent victory against Arizona was a 74-73 thriller on Jan. 23, 2016 in Berkeley. The last time Cal defeated a top-five-ranked (AP) team was on Feb. 1, 2014 when it knocked off No. 1 Arizona 60-58 in Berkeley on Justin Cobbs' game winner with 0.9 seconds remaining.
The Wildcats have ranked as high as No. 1 nationally this season, besting ranked foes in Duke, Michigan State and Wisconsin. Their two losses have come in the past three games against then-No. 3 Purdue (Dec. 16) and then-No. 14 Florida Atlantic (Dec. 23), the latter a double-overtime contest in Las Vegas.
LAST TIME Fardaws Aimaq had 19 points and 10 rebounds, Jalen Cone scored 15 points on five 3-pointers and Cal had a 26-point lead erased before rallying to defeat UC San Diego 71-67 on Dec. 20 in Berkeley. Aimaq threw down an alley-oop dunk off an assist by Jaylon Tyson to give Cal a 65-61 lead and after Emmanuel Tshimanga brought it back to a one-possession game with two free throws for UC San Diego, Jalen Celestine answered with a 3-pointer for a five-point lead. The Tritons (6-6) pulled back within one point, 68-67, with 22 seconds left before Keonte Kennedy hit two free throws for a 70-67 lead. Tyler McGhie was short on a 3-pointer for UCSD on the following possession and Celestine sealed the Bears' win by making 1 of 2 free throws.
Cal scored the opening 10 points of the game and extended its lead to 21-2, making its first seven field goals and 8 of 9. The Bears took their biggest lead of the game at 34-8 after a 9-0 run that was keyed by one of Celestine's three 3-pointers. UC San Diego scored 21 of the first 27 points of the second half to get within 50-48. Cal went without a point for over five minutes, missing six straight shots, during UCSD's 14-0 run. The Tritons took their first lead of the game at 56-55 on Bryce Pope's deep 3-pointer with 8:55 remaining.
UP NEXT Cal closes the 2023 calendar year against Arizona State at 5 p.m. Sunday in Berkeley. The New Year's Eve tilt will air on the Pac-12 Network.
