  • Drop-Off Locator
    A drop-off location is a building or post box where you can deposit your shipment for collection and transportation by the carrier. Some drop-off locations belong to the carrier; others belong to partner companies of the carrier. Use the Drop-Off Locator option on the TMS menu to find drop-off locations close to you.
    Note: This feature is dependent on carriers exposing their drop-off location information to PRECISION. It may not be available for all carriers.
    To open the Drop-Off Locator, on the left menu, choose Transportation Management|Drop-Off Locator, or enter SHDROP in the QuickPath option. The Drop-Off Locator screen is displayed.
