How do you feel?
When Daniels and Tennessee eject the trucks from the cargo bay, they start to fall towards the planet.
The Covenant spent most of the movie very close to the planet's surface, including near the end meaning the planet's gravity would have an effect on the truck. If the Covenant had been orbiting, the trucks would have merely trailed behind it in the same orbit ; but it was effectively hovering over the planet, so they fell out.
