What Can A Drop Trailer Help Your Business?

by Michael Kotendzhi | Trucking

In the modern days of the logistics in Vancouver, time and capacity are symmetrical to each other which the supply chain industry always focuses to improve. One of the methods is the drop trailer program. In the past years, a logistics company develops an approach to exchange trailers where the tractors drop off and pick up at the same site.

In the older days, a carrier arrives at the destination dropping off a trailer within a limited time frame to load and unload. It takes a considerable number of efforts for all chains of operation to complete the operation. With all the possible interruptions such as weather, traffic, or any accidents, the extra cost will accumulate with missing appointments, delays, and customer dissatisfaction.

The practice of drop trailer has proven to increase the efficiency and lessen the waiting time for all parties. When an empty trailer is dropped off and a loaded trailer is picked up, the exchange is established as the “drop and hook” approach. The retention fee on the tractor can be avoided and the customer can be flexible and proper on the loading process. Even taking in any unforeseeable calamities, logistics and transportation are not getting affected much.
