What is Rail Drayage?

The drayage portion of intermodal transportation is the movement of the intermodal container by truck from the shipper origin to the rail ramp, and also from the rail ramp to the receiver destination. Schneider Rail Dray helps railroad providers, third-party logistics providers and direct shippers use their own containers to complete these drayage movements.
