How Every Shipper Can Benefit From Modern Drop-And-Hook
Shippers and carriers love drop-and-hook freight for its speed and simplicity. In fact, the majority of US Fortune 500 shipments are sent through preloaded drop trailers.
The challenge with drop has been one of scale. Traditional drop services are limited to specific lanes and regions, and when demand surges, they can’t flex up to accommodate the additional volume.
In 2017, Convoy Go became the first drop-and-hook service that let carriers of all sizes, including owner-operators, haul power-only loads. This unique, modern approach to drop offered shippers flexible, nationwide capacity with the reliability they’d come to expect from asset-based carriers.
Technological advancements through the use of machine learning and automation have further differentiated modern drop services like Convoy Go, providing shippers with national, reliable capacity that can quickly flex to meet increased demand—even in an unexpected surge.
