Drop Trailer Services
In many cases, MSL coordination from the brand manufacturer or DC to MSL required additional drop trailers in the mix. This program allows flexibility for the client and MSL alike to unload/reload trailers without compromising the driver’s idle time sitting at the dock. Drop trailer program increases efficiency for facilities with limited dock appointment times, after-hours product handling, or programs where materials may have extended load times. The driver can focus on more time moving goods from point A to point B without compromising on precious available on-duty drivable hours. Drop trailer programs can decrease the “cost per unit” associated with individual trailer moves by allowing for a reduced round trip rate in exchange for detention and time associated with loading/unloading.
