What Is A Tow Tractor?

A tow tractor, sometimes called a “tugger” is a vehicle built to tow goods or raw materials within warehouses or manufacturing plants. Some special categories of tow tractors are also used in airports or other transportation hubs for towing baggage and cargo.

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

How Are Tow Tractors Used?

Tow tractors have a wide range of applications in a variety of industries. From light duty to heavy industrial applications, tow tractors are a good fit for many operations.


Many warehouses require horizontal transportation of commodities that do not require 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 forklifts.

The same concept applies for low level order picking or goods replenishment. Many more items can be loaded and moved on carts, saving pickers 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)

Most people are familiar with the site of baggage carts being towed from the tarmac to the terminal. These carts are transported by tow tractors that are designed for airport applications.
