What does Drop mean?

In the shipping context, a drop refers to the delivery of goods directly to a customer’s location, rather than to a central warehouse or distribution center. Drop shipments are commonly used in retail and e-commerce, where suppliers ship products directly to customers on behalf of the retailer. Drops may also refer to the unloading of goods from a truck or other vehicle.
