Explanation: Drop and swap logistics

The term "drop and swap logistics" refers to a special method of transport and storage logistics. In this method, a truck driver delivers a full trailer (or container) to a destination ("drop") and picks up an empty or already loaded trailer at the same location ("swap").

This is useful in fields of work where high volumes and tight schedules require an efficient and flexible logistics solution, such as the automotive industry, retail and e-commerce logistics. The method offers companies advantages in terms of increased efficiency, flexibility, productivity and optimization of the resources used or required.
