Container Drayage
"This way up" to warehousing, transportation and logistics that exceed your expectations.

We train our drayage teams the old-fashioned way.

At WhiteStar, we take a hands-on approach to the challenges of container drayage. Our first-class intermodal services are designed to race your products from start to finish between ports, rail ramps and trucking hubs at a price that won't break anyone's back. Today, our fleet of container, box and flat bed trucks get the job done efficiently.

Historically, a dray was a low sideless cart used for moving heavy crates and barrels over a short distance. Dray comes from an Old English word dragan meaning to drag or pull. Drays were pulled by strong draft horses, a well-known example being the Clydesdales.

With the advent of rail transportation, drays were used to transport goods very short distances from ships to rail, and from rail to truck or delivery van. And so it is today. Drayage is a short-throw transportation that fills in the gaps — the local movement of goods between primary transport systems, and generally completed within a few hours.

this way upWhiteStar handles drayage to and from DFW and Houston-area rail hubs, airports and (Houston-area) shipping ports. And since trains and ships don't wait, we do whatever it takes to ensure time-sensitive shipments arrive at their destinations on time.

If you’ve ever attended a trade show, drayage also includes the storage and movement of freight from loading dock, to staging area, to your booth. Another example is the moving of freight from common loading dock to stores in a shopping mall, or to rooms in a hotel or office building.

When moving goods between ship and train, or train and truck, we update shipping manifests and other paper documents that accompany shipments. Today drayage often includes unloading a partial container load of goods into another possibly smaller container for storage or delivery on site.

WhiteStar commonly moves Full Container Loads (FCL) as well as Less-Than-Container Loads (LCL) between ports and rail heads, and between rail hubs and trucking distribution centers throughout the continental U.S. Our streamlined service and hands-on approach makes it easier than ever to ship and receive containerized goods.
