Today, more than 80% of global shipping involves containers. They're packed with everything from personal storage items in dry containers to heavy machinery on flat rack containers. For business owners shipping products, getting a container from point A to point B requires precise planning and high-level tracking. But that's easier said than done when global supply chains become over-congested, leading to loading time issues and delays.
That's bad news for business owners who are already under a massive amount of stress. The truth is that container storage delays can cripple a business, but there's a viable solution: drayage brokers in Baltimore, MD like RelyEx. Drayage companies provide unique solutions to minimize demurrage and help ensure the successful delivery of your freight.
With more than 30 combined years of experience and a solutions-oriented team, RelyEx has quickly become the first choice for streamlined, efficient drayage services. To understand the true value of RelyEx's offerings in the global logistics industry, it helps to understand first what drayage is and why it's used.
If you're a seasoned business owner who uses port drayage to transport your products, you know exactly how important the service can be. But if you were to poll a group of random people, you may get five different definitions of the term "drayage." That begs the question, how is one of the most crucial steps in the supply chain and most vital components of global trade such a confusing concept? When you break it down, it's not too difficult to grasp.
Drayage, by definition, means the transportation of freight from an ocean port to another destination. Today, drayage is also used to describe the process of transporting products and goods over short distances or over "the first mile."
While drayage often means short-distance movements during the supply chain process, it's primarily used in the container shipping space. Drayage loads usually have arrival and departure points in the same city and don't include long-haul, national transportation.
Because a drayage load can mean a few different things, confusion among carriers is common. Many carriers link drayage with going into a port, but that isn't always true. While all drayage loads typically originate from a port of entry, there are often several legs of a drayage journey before a container turns up at its final stop. Legs of a drayage load may include:
You may be thinking, what's so important about drayage? It's such a small step in the container storage transport process. In reality, it's an integral piece needed in the logistics industry and a crucial part of U.S. supply chain management.
To truly understand the importance of drayage, let's use flowers as an example. Most cut flower shipments enter the market from areas in South America until they end up at Dutch auction houses. Once there, wholesalers purchase flowers in bulk and send those products to retail outlets worldwide. Because flowers are perishable, they typically need to be refrigerated and are often shipped in reefer containers. These refrigerated vessels must maintain a certain temp to prevent loss.
Drayage companies like RelyEx allow flower shippers to send their products from Argentinian ports to airports in the Netherlands with peace of mind because their products are protected. The only way to accomplish this feat is with the help of swift, meticulous port drayage services. Drayage companies allow flower shippers to send their products from Argentinian ports to airports in the Netherlands with peace of mind, because their products are protected. The only way to accomplish this feat is with the help of swift, meticulous port drayage services.
If port drayage is compromised, it can cause delays and even fines. You know the packages you get delivered to your front door from apps like Amazon? Without drayage and drayage brokers, one or two-day shipping times wouldn't even be possible.
As a multi-billion-dollar industry in the U.S. alone, it seems like drayage shipping issues shouldn't exist. But the fact is inefficiencies and congestion are still major problems at ports. Whether it's a lack of carriers, absent chassis, or overburdened terminals, delays lead to missed deadlines, lost revenue, and worse.
But anytime challenges exist, so too do innovative solutions.QUOTE REQUEST
RelyEx was created because our founders saw a need in the logistics space for more reliability and efficiency. The reality of the shipping and logistics industry is that it has become very transactional. It's an odd evolution, because most businesses seek a third-party logistics partner that is accessible, transparent, and committed to providing solutions.

Based in the port city of Baltimore, RelyEx has a keen understanding of the challenges of managing the inbound and outbound flow of containers. Our team of container drayage experts provides your business with unique solutions to nuanced shipping problems, minimizing demurrage and ensuring the successful delivery of your freight.
Demurrage is a charge issued by a port, carrier, or railroad company for storing containers that do not load and unload their cargo promptly. Once the daily limit of free time is exceeded, shippers are charged daily demurrage fees until their cargo is shipped. Though different ports have different policies, charges can range from $75 to $150 per container, per day, for a set number of days. Additional demurrage fees are incurred if a shipper exceeds the port's parameters.
Even when shippers maintain a tight schedule for unloading freight, external factors can play an uncontrollable part. Typically, shipping mistakes caused by human error trigger the most demurrage charges. Some of the most common causes of demurrage include:
Typically, shippers need four specific documents to clear shipments through customs: A Bill of Lading (or BOL), a commercial invoice, a packing list, and an arrival notice. Seasoned drayage brokers like RelyEx are used to preparing these documents, but new shippers tend to miss this step due to inexperience.
If a shipper only pays for part of their shipment, a vessel operator may refuse to release their freight until their bill is fully paid. Payment delays lead to cargo detention at the port of entry, which triggers demurrage charges.QUOTE REQUEST
Paperwork is needed when you're shipping goods with a drayage company. When documents like the Certificate of Origin or Bill of Lading arrive at their destination late, you can expect demurrage fees. RelyEx avoids this situation entirely by being proactive when submitting paperwork.
Additional causes for demurrage fees can include:
At RelyEx, we know first-hand how stressful supply chain problems can be for business owners. Though drayage shipping might seem minor on the surface, it affects every stage of your shipping process. And when inevitable hurdles manifest, RelyEx propels you over the proverbial roadblocks with a proactive mindset and a passion for challenging projects. We believe that all problems have a solution, and our unique vantage point allows us to provide first-hand solutions to customers in a wide array of industries.

BALTIMORE -- State lawmakers have announced millions in federal funding for the nation's first ever dirt bike campus in Baltimore.
These funds will provide a safe place for dirt bikers to ride off city streets and help them with career-focused opportunities.
Some people see dirt bikes as a public nuisance.
Other people see dirt bike riders doing wheelies on the streets as a cultural staple in Charm City.
Now, one organization is preparing to pave the way for Baltimore's famed dirt bike riders.
B-360, the Black-led organization, is promoting stem-related education and celebrating the city's dirt bike culture.
"What this will help us do is help us build the first ever dirt bike campus in the country," Brittany Young of B360 said. "So, imagine a space where you can ride indoors—a space you can ride outdoors and have a commercial kitchen."
Nearly $3 million will be spent on the endeavor.
The funds will be used to erect the campus in Baltimore while promoting economic opportunities and public safety.
Dana Peterson Moore, Baltimore's first chief equity officer, said the funding would have a major impact on the city.
"The money you made sure B360 gets, we talk about making it to scale, its huge, it's a game changer," Moore said.
In a press conference on Friday afternoon, Maryland U.S. Sens. Chris Van. Hollen and Ben Cardin explained why they backed the funding. They also used the opportunity to praise the grassroots organization.
The plan is to take "the passion so many young people have for dirt biking and using that to channel them into a passion for learning about the bike itself," Van Hollen said.
B-360 Day will continue at 1 p.m. on Sunday with the RICH Program and other local organizations joining together to host a Family Fun Day at the B&O Museum Overflow Lot on 1101 James St Baltimore, MD 21223. The B-360 Reception and Fundraiser will follow at 6 p.m. This event will also be open to the public and media.

TOWSON, Md. —
Wastewater collected from the Ohio train derailment site could be headed to Maryland for treatment, Baltimore City and Baltimore County officials announced Friday afternoon.
Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott said the city received a letter late Thursday from contractor Clean Harbors Environmental and Industrial Services, stating that the company is one of many sites across the country selected by the Environmental Protection Agency to accept, treat and discharge the wastewater collected from rainwater at the city-run Back River Waste Water Treatment Plant in Dundalk.
| PDF: Read the letter
Clean Harbors wrote in its letter: "Clean Harbors proposes to begin receiving this wastewater immediately once approval is granted. The initial known quantity currently loaded in rail cars is 675,000 gallons."
This comes a month after a fiery train derailment on the Ohio-Pennsylvania border. The Associated Press reported there were no injuries in the Feb. 3 derailment, but half of the almost 5,000 residents of East Palestine, Ohio, had to evacuate for days when responders intentionally burned toxic chemicals in some of the derailed cars to prevent an uncontrolled explosion, leaving residents with lingering health concerns.
Mike Welch is one of many residents concerned.
"Who knows what this water is going to do to us?" Welch said. "It's hard to say what's going to happen, but I'm disappointed by it."
"I think about the poor deer drinking the water and the birds, not just us people," said Debbie Locklear, a resident.
Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski said a company will pretreat the wastewater before it arrives in Maryland. The officials said they have concerns about how the wastewater will get to Maryland and for the overall operation.
Scott said he and Olszewski and officials have grave concerns about the waste from the derailment site coming to Maryland facilities and being discharged into the city's system.
"(We) have grave concerns about the waste from this derailment coming into our facilities and being discharged into our system," Scott said.
"We are really committed to the safety and well-being of our shared residents and all who are served by the wastewater system in the Baltimore region," Olszewski said. "We want to make sure that our residents have every confidence that if this is going to happen, it's done safely."
He said additional testing will be performed before any discharging of treated wastewater into the public wastewater collection system is authorized.
"We will continue to work with MDE and EPA to understand the risks associated with this wastewater and to ensure protecting the residents of both Baltimore City and Baltimore County, which is our chief priority," Scott said.
Video below: Watch the news conference in its entirety
The mayor said the EPA and the Maryland Department of the Environment chose Back River because the plant can handle the pretreated wastewater and is operating in good standing.
The city has been working to get the Back River Wastewater Treatment Plant in state compliance after the Maryland Environmental Service took charge of the plant's operations a year ago after it failed to comply with an order to cease all illegal sewage discharges.
And, a week ago, an explosion ripped a wall from the treatment plant and ignited a two-alarm fire. The mayor said the explosion did not impact the plant's operations.
"The water treatment plant is dealing with a lot right now," Welch said.
The officials later released a joint statement, saying, in part: "State and federal officials have assured us they are confident in the facility's ability to process this material. However, we have tasked our teams to do their due diligence to be certain that there is no risk to the health and safety or our residents and our environment.

This photo taken with a drone shows portions of a Norfolk and Southern freight train that derailed Feb. 3 in East Palestine, Ohio.
"Additionally, we are seeking a legal opinion from the Attorney General's Office regarding the city's requirement to treat and discharge the waste from the Norfolk Southern Railroad derailment at Back River."
A timeline of when the wastewater could arrive in Maryland was not immediately known, the mayor said.
U.S. Sen. Chris Van Hollen, D-Maryland, released a statement, saying: "Keeping our communities safe is my top priority. We need immediate answers from the EPA, including the basis for their assurance that this won’t put Marylanders' health and safety at risk. I've been in contact with them and local officials in Baltimore City and County. No plan should be finalized until we get satisfactory answers."
"The health and safety of Marylanders is top priority for all of state government. As states throughout the nation are working in partnership to help the people of East Palestine, Ohio, recover from the recent derailment tragedy, Maryland is doing its part.
"Norfolk Southern chose Maryland's Clean Harbors facility because it is well equipped to help. Information provided to the Maryland Department of the Environment shows that about 2 million gallons of water sourced from a stream adjacent to the derailment are coming for treatment. Levels of contaminants are so low that the water is not considered to be hazardous waste and contaminants will be fully removed before the water is discharged.
"The Maryland Department of the Environment will continue to exercise regulatory oversight of the Back River Wastewater Treatment Plant and will work closely with Baltimore City and Baltimore County officials to monitor the treatment process and protect both public health and the environment. We will also continue to work with the federal government to ensure we have the resources and staffing needed to handle treatment."

Baltimore County Delegates Kathy Szeliga, R-District 7A, and Ryan Nawrocki, R-District 7A, issued a statement saying they stand firmly against this proposal and they will introduce emergency legislation in Annapolis in an effort to prohibit Maryland from "becoming Ohio's toxic waste dump."
"There is no amount of money that could possibly pay to process the toxic cleanup waste from the chemical disaster in Ohio," Szeliga said in the statement.
"As a member of the Environment and Transportation Committee, I have heard countless hours of testimony regarding the continual failures at the Back River Wastewater Treatment Plant in Dundalk. This treatment plant has a history of sewage overflows. They certainly should not be trusted to process toxic waste into Maryland's greatest natural resource," Nawrocki said in the statement.

ANNAPOLIS, MD — Governor Wes Moore today announced that Home Chef, an online and in-store meal solutions company, will establish a new manufacturing and distribution center in Baltimore City, creating more than 500 new full-time jobs in the community by 2024. The Maryland Department of Commerce and Baltimore Development Corporation worked proactively with Home Chef to assist with project costs, location services, and a 10-year lease agreement that will result in Home Chef occupying approximately 150,000 square feet of space located at 1701 East Patapsco Avenue.
“Home Chef’s entrance into Maryland will help diversify the state’s business community, expand local job opportunities, and reflect new investment in Maryland’s economic competitiveness," said Governor Moore. “We are working diligently with our partners across the state and in local communities to create work, wages, and wealth for all Marylanders and believe deeply in the potential and opportunities that lie ahead for Baltimore City.”
Home Chef is the leading meal solutions company with a presence online and in-stores and provides approachable, delicious meals that simplify the cooking process.

The new Baltimore facility will be Home Chef’s largest by volume, accounting for more than 30% of Home Chef’s meal solutions delivered nationwide. The production and distribution center was designed specifically to meet Home Chef’s high food safety standards and will provide increased efficiencies for docking, storage, and facility flow.
"Home Chef's move into Baltimore City to expand its manufacturing and distribution center is yet another example of how the city's strategic location and easy access via rail, highway, port and air makes it a great manufacturing and logistics hub,” said Baltimore Development Corporation President and Chief Executive Officer Colin Tarbert. “We are excited to see Home Chef grow in Baltimore and offer city residents employment."
