What is Drop off Charge ?
Drop off Charge, also known as drop fee or bobtail fee, is usually charged by the trucker to drop off an FCL container at a warehouse and pick it up once it has been unloaded. Usually, truckers only allow 1-2 hours of free wait time for their containers to be unloaded. However, when the containers cannot be unloaded within this specified time, the trucker will have to drop off the container later. This drop-off requires an extra trip for the trucker for which a drop-off charge is issued.
