Drop Trailer 

Drop Trailer Services

MTL operates a fleet with over 500 trailers that are ready to save you time, money and headaches. Using a drop trailer program will help your company run a smoother, more efficient supply chain operation. You can load or unload a trailer at your convenience: no more paying overtime to load or unload when a truck arrives early or late. With the new “Hours of Service” rules issued by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) being strictly monitored by the (ELD) mandate, a drop trailer program will help you optimize your load planning and increase efficiency.
