Turbocharge Shipments with Expedited Direct Drayage
Direct drayage is your efficient solution for hassle-free long-haul transportation. Your full container is loaded onto a specialized chassis, for uninterrupted delivery.
At The Block, we handle the process seamlessly. First, the container is transported to the vendor yard (prepull). Then it's transferred to a long-haul trucking chassis (chassis split). Our Block Logistics Operations team coordinates the final delivery to align with your convenience.
Once your shipment arrives, the container returns to the vendor yard. We secure an appointment with the SSL port to return the equipment.
Experience streamlined operations, efficiency, and peace of mind from our direct drayage service.
Expedited Direct Drayage Delivers in Record Time
When every day counts, direct drayage emerges as the optimal choice for swift shipment delivery. Compared to transload options, it typically slashes 3-5 days off transit time. When compared to rail transit, which can stretch anywhere from 1 to 5+ weeks depending on rail services, direct drayage takes the lead.
Rail delays are a common occurrence due to limited rail car space and terminal chassis pool shortages, often resulting in frustrating delays and potential fees, like per diem charges. By opting for direct drayage services, you can minimize or altogether avoid these setbacks and additional expenses.
