What Is A Tow Tractor?

Tow tractors, often called “tuggers” are vehicles built to tow goods or raw materials within a warehouse or manufacturing facility. A few specific types of tow tractors can also be utilized in baggage handling operations within airports.

Tow tractors can be powered by batteries or internal combustion, and come in a broad range of capacities and designs. They are typically set up to tow utility carts behind them, and are appointed with various types of tow hitches.

How Are Tow Tractors Used?

Tow tractors have many uses in a variety of industries. They can be a good fit for many types of operations, from light duty to heavy industrial uses.


In many warehouses, there is a need for horizontal transport of goods that don’t need stacking. By daisy chaining several carts behind an electric tow tractor, operators can transport goods much more efficiently than moving individual loads on pallet jacks or lift trucks.

The same concept applies for low level order picking or goods replenishment. Many more items can be transported on carts, saving operators time by avoiding multiple trips.


Tuggers can be utilized for a variety of tasks within a manufacturing facility, from general parts picking to heavy duty hauling of items like steel bar stock.

Airport Ground Support Equipment (GSE)

The sight of baggage carts being transported from the gate to the terminal is familiar to almost everyone that travels. These carts are transported by tow tractors that are designed for airport applications.
