The growth of the e-commerce market will drive the global drayage services market. E-commerce players across the globe have been making investments in building several local warehouses that require drayage services to transport goods from distribution centers, ports, and railways to local warehouses. This enables them to reduce the overall timeline for delivery of goods to customers. Moreover, cargo from ports, railways, distribution centers is shipped to local warehouses, instead of regional or national warehouses, to ensure consistent and timely supply during peak seasons.

One of the procurement best practices for buyers is to engage with suppliers that have a high degree of technological adoption. Buyers must look to engage with suppliers that have adopted cloud-based platforms and technologies such as IoT and telematics to ensure the safety of shipments during transit. For instance, telematics can provide information related to the state of the vehicle (start/stop/idle), temperature variations, and forced opening of containers. This can help suppliers to mitigate any potential risks that might damage buyer's goods.

Solutions can be categorized into:

  • Cross-town drayage: transportation of goods over short distances within a geographic region
  • Door-to-door drayage: delivery of goods at client's location
  • Expedited drayage: swift or rapid transport of time-sensitive freight via road
