What is a Drop-Trailer?

A drop-trailer is a type of trailer used in the shipping industry that is designed to be left at a customer’s facility for extended periods of time. Rather than being attached to a truck and driven to its destination, a drop-trailer is preloaded with cargo and then dropped off at the customer’s location. This allows the customer to unload the trailer at their own pace and eliminates the need for the shipping company to wait for the trailer to be unloaded before it can be returned to the warehouse or sent to its next destination.
