In the ocean freight industry, we know when demand increases availability of drayage equipment and drivers decreases, especially in the major seaport and intermodal rail ramp areas. Over the years the Demanko drayage team has focused on building partnerships with reliable equipment owners to create predictable service levels in these regions as demand for capacity and equipment increases.

Although the Demanko drayage network covers most of North America, we are highlighting our strengths in these specific regions, as our understanding of the pitfalls in each terminal has enabled us to successfully build up our driver capacity and develop solutions to help mitigate the specific challenges in each of these key port terminals and rail ramps.

BALTIMORE: The Port of Baltimore offers the deepest harbor in Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay. Closer to the Midwest than any other East Coast port, the Port in Baltimore City also is within an overnight drive of one-third of the nation’s population. The terminals at the port often see consistent congestion and capacity issues during even normal levels of ocean traffic. It is no secret that FCL ocean import and exports are down considerably this year, however the industry chatter is that a strong fourth quarter will bring an influx of container freight to the port of Baltimore.
