What is Container Drop?
“Container drop” is an industry jargon term, used to describe when a container is left at a receiving facility, to be unloaded without the driver’s presence.
When is container drop implemented?
This process is only implemented when the load is being dropped at warehouses with secure yards or dock bays that can be closed with the container inside. This way, the warehouse is responsible for the container and the contents while in their possession. Companies often engage in “container drop” when trying to avoid making appointments, planning for labor, and avoiding wait time charges from the trucking company.
