In the shipping industry and logistics, drayage is the transport of goods a short distance, often as part of a longer overall move. A drayage trip can typically be completed in a single work shift. The term drayage is also used for the fee paid for such services.
The term originally meant “to transport by a sideless cart,” or dray. Such carts, pulled by dray horses, were used to move good between ships or railroad cars and factories, warehouses and shops. – Drayage – Wikipedia
