English term or phrase: drop-trailer
Bom dia, boa tarde, boa noite a todos,

o meu primeiro problema do dia é este (e, pelo jeitão da coisa, vou ter muitos outros):

Drop-trailer. Trailers that are uncoupled from a tractor unit at a depot or store without the tractor unit waiting for the load to be unloaded. This releases the tractor unit for further work.

Me parece que a definição serve perfeitamente para o que a gente conhece como "reboque". Há algum reboque que não seja desacoplável? Que não possa ser deixado onde for necessário para que a "unidade de tração"(?) possa ir tratar da vida dela em outro lugar sem esperar o desembarque da carga?

Que diferença faz o "drop", *em português*? O que é, estritamente, um "semi-reboque"?

Muito obrigado,

Tomás

Do Aurélio, quentinho:
semi-reboque = 1. Reboque sem eixo dianteiro, parcialmente apoiado pelo veículo trator.

\"Drop\" dá a idéia de largar, daí minha sugestão.
Do Heritage:
Drop = 13. To leave or set down at a particular place; unload

DROP TRAILER = "Traga sua carreta até aqui....." (o resto, deixe por nossa conta)


Explanation:
Na verdade trata-se mesmo aqui de um tipo de serviço, não de um tipo de "carreta" ou "reboque" IMHO (voce deixe aqui sua carreta, o resto fica por nossa conta: "Clients can simply drop trailers at our secure terminal in Southampton, (...) and leave the rest to us"

Leia abaixo Tomás, hope it helps and that it's not too late for my answering
(saw just now this question of yours)!

"Red Funnel Ferries, in conjunction with Red Funnel Distribution, offer a 24/7 drop trailer operation between Southampton and the Isle of Wight.

The service is suitable for any operator looking to reduce costs by gainfully re-deploying drivers and tractor units on the mainland instead of making their own Island deliveries.

We offer both the flexibility of 'block' booked slots and the ability to cater for time sensitive ad-hoc shipments. Clients can simply drop trailers at our secure terminal in Southampton, complete the necessary paperwork, including any client invoked trailer checks, and leave the rest to us.

We will ship the trailer to our East Cowes terminal at a specified time for onward delivery anywhere on the Isle of Wight using Red Funnel Distribution's own tractor units.

We offer a high level of service reliability making a complex just-in-time operation entirely feasible. For example, we can deliver to an Island store to meet a specific slot, unload caged goods, then load a refrigerated back load at another location and ship the unaccompanied trailer back to Southampton to meet incoming drivers and units."
