A pre-pull is when the trucker pulls an FCL container from the port and stores it at the trucker’s yard instead of immediately delivering it.
Why is a pre-pull necessary?
Flexport might also use a pre-pull if your container has arrived at the Port of Los Angeles/Long Beach, in order to retrieve the container outside of peak hours and avoid paying the Pier Pass fee.
If applicable, a pre-pull will be listed on your invoice as an Origin or Destination Charge.
