More Pay. More Consistency. More Nights & Weekends at Home.

Drayage is one of the most desirable segments in freight hauling, and one of the highest paid. Driving drayage can mean a steady flow of routine loads, and fewer long haul trips away from home.

In 2021 alone, NTG shipped more dray shipments through our carrier network than Amazon. We know the ins and outs of dray, ensuring we are paying demurrage and detention fees so our carriers avoid idle time at ports.

There are a number of benefits to becoming a drayage carrier:

  • More money
  • More volume
  • Ability to control distance with typically fewer long haul trips
  • More nights and weekends at home
  • More consistency with routes
  • Less worry trying to find backhauls
  • Less price volatility
