In the USA, some of the trucking companies charge bob tail fees for container deliveries.

Truckers pick up the container from the port and deliver it to the 3PL and the Warehouse takes 2 to 3 days for unloading.
Once unloaded, they have to go back only for picking up and drop the empty container at the port. In such a case, they will charge a bob tail fee.

If they are going to drop another container at the same 3PL and pick up the empty container, then these charges won't be applicable.
