Description: drayage is the movement of shipments over a short distance, such as from a warehouse to the port or vice versa in the same urban area.  It is usually capable of being accomplished in one work shift.  Drayage is often used to refer to the fees involved in such movements of shipments.

If a shipment moves inland to be cleared at a point closer to the final destination instead of at the port it arrives at, then drayage will need to be carried out by a bonded carrier, one licensed to move goods that have not cleared customs yet.
