What Is A Tow Tractor?

Tow tractors, often called “tuggers” are vehicles built to tow merchandise or raw materials within a warehouse or manufacturing facility. Some special categories of tow tractors may also be employed in airports or other transportation hubs for towing baggage and cargo.

Tuggers are available in a wide range of capacities and designs, and can be powered by batteries or internal combustion. These vehicles are generally configured to tow carts behind them, and are furnished with tow hitches for this purpose.

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 attaching several carts behind an electric tow tractor, workers can transport goods much more efficiently than moving individual loads on pallet trucks or forklifts.

The same concept applies for low level order picking or goods replenishment. On a series of carts, many more items can be transported, saving pickers time by reducing their number of trips.


Tow tractors can be put to use for a variety of tasks within a manufacturing facility, from lightweight 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 tarmac to the terminal is familiar to almost everyone that travels. These carts are transported by tow tractors that are designed for airport applications.
