Port Services and Drayage

Don’t let your inventory get tangled up at the port. We’re experts in moving solar and we’re experts at managing inbound details at the dock. Kinect Solar can manage your immediate port services and drayage needs, or you can take advantage of our fully integrated solar logistics and warehousing services to get your product all the way from the port to the job. Whatever you need, our business is making your business run better.

Port arrival demands focused attention to get your product to its destination quickly. With the current backups at U.S. ports, it’s more important than ever to make sure your containers are removed in a timely manner to avoid demurrage and detention charges. And, of course, to keep your customers happy and your business flowing by avoiding delays. This often requires coordinating with multiple providers to handle the paperwork and customs requirements upon shipment arrival, and then to secure drayage services to move your equipment out of port for transloading or storage.

Complicated procedures at the port can leave you vulnerable to paying extra charges for things like goods dues, terminal handling, port storage, early/late arrival, lift-on/lift-off, cancellation and amendment charges. And with multiple providers working to get your equipment out of port, it’s easy for miscommunication to snarl something between the container offloading and transloading at the warehouse.

On top of all the moving logistics pieces, with specialty equipment like fragile PV modules, you also need to know that any providers handling your shipment have the experience to do so safely. We are drayage experts and solar is the only thing we do. If your job is easier, we’re doing our job right.

We solve complex supply chain issues for the solar industry so you don’t have to
