What does drayage mean for you in Alaska?
In some cases, “drayage” (a word derived from the dray horse, once used for short-run cart hauling) is linked with FCL and LCL freight shipping, and moving containerized goods a short distance. It can also refer to charges for these short-run pickup and delivery services.
But at Royal Alaskan Movers, it means we cover every step of your freight and supply chain management needs. Moving cargo from overseas to Anchorage, and need pickup and delivery on both ends? Moving your goods from a warehouse in Juneau to a retailer in that same city? Royal Alaskan Movers takes you every step of the way. And the steps are often many…
When your cargo arrives in an Alaskan terminal (seaport or airport), that’s typically only the start of the journey: it’s trucking those goods to their final destination that can create challenges.
Because 1) most businesses don’t have the teams and trucks to move cargo from the shipping yards to their places of business, and 2) for reliable short-run delivery and pickup, you want a freight partner with deep experience in short distance trucking in Alaska.
Drayage services in Alaska require local drivers who know how to best navigate the north, and safely transport your goods under what can often be hazardous driving conditions.
Royal Alaskan Movers uses local drivers with local know-how, to ensure timely, cost-effective, and secure transport of your goods, whether it’s FF&E, heavy equipment, or restock for retail outlets, we will pickup and deliver through the first and final miles, and every step in-between.
