Circle Logistics (Circle), a third-party logistics (3PL) provider, officially announced that it has launched a drayage division to provide support at the Port of Detroit, the largest seaport in the state of Michigan. This initiative was developed to alleviate heightened pressures stemming from global shortages in equipment and labor that have extended turnaround times and delays within the drayage process. Through its extensive network of industry leaders and providers, Circle will now provide drayage offerings for its customers, servicing the U.S. and Canada.
“When analyzing the current state of the supply chain, we identified an opportunity to apply our most successful end-to-end logistics service philosophies to the drayage industry,” said William Costello, terminal manager, Circle. “For the past decade, Circle’s operations have committed to providing no-fail service that establishes visibility and reliability, even in the most complex market conditions.”
Included in its division offerings, Circle will connect customers to their private pool of chassis to help alleviate the chassis shortage that has been limiting drayage processes at ports globally for the last year. Circle’s drayage division will also offer truck-to-port service, pre-pull, storage, same-day expedited shipments, and tracking of containers for smoother deliveries with optimized Reefer monitoring.
