Vocabulary: Drayage

I learned a new word today! I was at a red light, and a truck pulled up next to me. I don't know the technical term for it, but it's the cab that goes with big huge box trucks, but without the big huge box. You know the ones.

The logo on the side said it was operated by So-and-So Drayage. (It wasn't really called So-and-So, I just didn't pay attention to the company name.) And I thought, I have no idea what "drayage" means. I figured it probably meant transport via truck... and as it turns out, I was right!

Go forth and use this new vocabulary word! I don't think I ever talk about transporting cargo by truck (or lorry) but I might find a reason to, in order to show off my fancy new word.
