What is a bobtail fee?

A bobtail fee is charged by the trucker to drop off an FCL container at the warehouse and pick it up after it has been unloaded, as opposed to a live unload. A bobtail fee is also called a drop fee.

A bobtail is a truck (tractor) that’s traveling without a trailer.

If applicable, a bobtail fee will appear on your Flexport invoice as a Destination Charge.
