What Is A Tow Tractor?

Tow tractors, often called “tuggers” are vehicles designed to tow merchandise or raw materials within a warehouse or other industrial operation. Some special categories of tow tractors are also used in airports or other transportation hubs for towing baggage and cargo.

Tuggers can be powered by batteries or internal combustion, and come in a wide range of designs and capacities. They are generally designed to tow utility carts behind them, and are furnished with various types of tow hitches.

How Are Tow Tractors Used?

Tow tractors have a wide range of applications across different types of businesses. They can be a good fit for many types of operations, from light duty to heavy industrial uses.


Horizontal transportation of commodities that do not require stacking is required in many warehouses. 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.

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.


Tuggers can be used for many jobs within a manufacturing facility, from lightweight parts picking to moving heavy loads like steel bar stock.

Airport Ground Support Equipment (GSE)

The sight of luggage carts being transported from the tarmac to the terminal is familiar to almost everyone that travels. Tow tractors designed for airport use are responsible for hauling these carts.
