What Is A Tow Tractor?

A tow tractor, sometimes called a “tugger” is a vehicle intended to tow merchandise or raw materials within a warehouse or other industrial operation. Some special categories of tow tractors can also be utilized in baggage handling operations within airports.

Tuggers can be powered by batteries or internal combustion, and come in a wide range of designs and capacities. They are usually set up to tow utility carts behind them, and are furnished with tow hitches for this purpose.

How Are Tow Tractors Used?

Tow tractors have many uses across different types of businesses. 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 numerous carts behind an electric tow tractor, workers can transport goods much more efficiently than moving individual loads on pallet trucks or lift trucks.

For low level order picking or product replenishment, the same approach applies. On a series of carts, many more items can be transported, saving pickers time by reducing their number of trips.


Tow tractors can be utilized for many applications within a manufacturing operation, from routine 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 gate to the terminal. Tow tractors designed for airport use are responsible for hauling these carts.
