We're transforming the world of freight
Dray Alliance is pioneering truly digital-first port logistics and is one of the fastest-growing companies in the world of supply chain.

  • Independently lead analytics projects end to end, with accountability for delivering project outcomes, driving projects to on-time completion, including project managing the scope, schedule, and resources assigned to these projects
