Port Drayage Services & Bulk Freight

Drayage involves the transportation of goods over a short distance, typically within the same city or metropolitan area. It’s a crucial link in the supply chain, bridging the gap between ports, factories, warehouses, and retail outlets.

So, whether you’re importing, exporting, or simply moving goods locally, drayage services can ensure your goods reach their final destination on time and intact.

Ecology’s Drayage Division is one of the largest and most efficient trucking services for the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach.  We operate throughout Southern California with a fleet of 100% compressed natural gas trucks.

We offer off-peak scheduling and have more than enough equipment to prevent shortages during peak seasons. 

Because we own and manage transfer stations and yards in Southern California, we can easily pick up and move containers and freight to and from the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach to meet time-sensitive shipping and receiving schedules.

Ecology Drayage Shipping Truck

The Drayage Division hauls containers to and from the 13 terminals at the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach.

We store the containers short-term (if needed) at our facility in Wilmington, CA, and deliver them to their destination when requested.

This lets you control just-in-time deliveries and import product inventory, saving you headaches with inventory turns, cash flow, and warehouse space.

With this system in place, we can deliver containers to port terminals precisely when they’re scheduled for loading.

For our export customers, we can pick up loaded end dumps, walking trailers, and belt trailers. We load containers at their location, store them at our 10-acre facility, and transport the containers at the scheduled time to be offloaded at the terminal.

Bulk Freight

Anything not packaged is considered bulk freight. Transportation requires special heavy haul equipment.

Our Heavy Haul Division handles bulk loads and bulk freight, typically transported in containers or bulk trailers like hoppers, end dumps, walking trailers, and belt trailers. 

Typical bulk loads include:

  • Agricultural products (corn, wheat, and soybeans)
    Industrial minerals (gypsum, clay, and salt)
  • Construction materials (sand, gravel, cement, and crushed stone)
  • Fertilizer
  • Iron ore
  • Metals

Bulk freight offers an efficient and cost-effective way to move these materials and more.
