Specialized Trucking Services
Michigan Truck and Trailering Spotting
Spotting trailers can be equally advantageous for carriers and customers, with flexibility and efficiency being at the top of the list. For carriers, being able to drop and hook an outbound load cuts valuable time out of service rules (HOS) by having fully loaded pickups ready when drivers arrive. On the other hand, shippers can blend loading into drop trailers for pre-planned outbound, with live loading for hot shot and last minute orders. Either way, drop trailer is valuable extension Vendor Connect or other JIT programs in a dynamic environment.
