The port of Oakland is exploring numerous ways to expedite the drayage process in the Port of Oakland. One of the possible solutions is to use the large amount of land surrounding the port to create dray-off sites for containers, as wells as storage and repair facilities for chassis.
What are dray-off sites? It's a location near a shipping port, where containers are brought to by the terminal after being unloaded off the ship. It speeds up the drayage times because it prevents trucks queuing in the terminals, waiting until their turns to grab the containers. The Oakland dray-off sites will allow your container trucking company to arrive at the site and collect the containers which are already off the ship and waiting for them.
Having a dedicated location off-site for chassis storage and repairs will also free up space in terminals, giving port terminals more room to use for containers and trucks.
