Drayage carriers play a large role in the supply chain. Cargo must be transported quickly and safely to the next shipping dock to ensure that the following operations run smoothly. Proper equipment, such as premium equipment at Heavy Weight Transport, is essential for well-organized load planning and movement.
Heavy Weight Transport uses a proprietary Transportation Management System (iTMS) for their trucking operations. Their system allows complete automation of internal processes from load verification and customer service, through tracking and operations. In addition to Heavy Weight Transports top-of-the-line trucking and drayage operational system, their in-house Warehouse management System (WHMS) is directly linked to their iTMS to allow for proper management of transloading inventory without the need to log inventory into storage and distribution software.
There are several different types of drayage. These include inter-carrier drayage, intra-carrier drayage, door-to-door drayage, expedited drayage, shuttle drayage and pier drayage.
