Exclusively For Dedicated and Contract Clients

"More shippers are turning to drop trailer services. The benefits span to carriers as well, though, as the services allow both parties to work together to achieve their mutual goals. Shippers, wanting to keep their supply chains running smoothly, are looking to plan more effectively for deliveries and outbound shipments. Drivers, trying to adhere to hours of service laws, want to spend less time waiting on a load to be packed and more time driving to their destination. Both shippers and carriers benefit from a drop trailer program that gives both parties control and independence, making the pick-up process more efficient and on-time deliveries more frequent -
Drop Trailer Program Benefits
By adopting a drop trailer program, shippers and carriers can finally gain independence and be able to work as a team.

Avoid costly accessorial charges for driver retention
Pick and pack optimization: product is able to flow through warehouse effectively
Higher on-time percentages
Benefits for carriers:

No more waiting to pick up a load

Drop & Hook Services
Taking drop trailer programs one step further are drop and hook services. With a drop trailer program, a driver will bring their tractor to the distribution center and pick up a loaded trailer. The drop and hook services compound on that by creating a trailer pool at both shipping and receiving points. A driver going to pick up a loaded trailer will arrive with an empty trailer; they will then pick up the loaded trailer and leave the empty one. This cyclical process ensures that there are always readily available trailers to be loaded, making the entire shipping process more convenient and further streamlining the supply chain.
For many shippers, the days of live-loading trailers, missing appointments and delivering late are over. Developing drop trailer programs and drop and hook services revolutionizes the way shippers and carriers interact. Giving each the freedom to carry out their responsibilities independently, drop trailer programs streamlines the shipping process and ultimately leads to more on-time deliveries".
