What Is A Tow Tractor?

Tow tractors, often called “tuggers” are vehicles intended to tow merchandise or raw materials within a warehouse or other industrial operation. Some specific types of tow tractors may also be employed in airport baggage and cargo handling applications.

Tuggers can be powered by batteries or internal combustion, and come in a broad range of designs and capacities. These vehicles are generally designed to tow carts behind them, and are equipped 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.


Horizontal transportation of commodities that do not require stacking is required in many warehouses. By daisy chaining several carts behind an electric tow tractor, workers can transport goods much more efficiently than moving individual loads on pallet trucks or forklifts.

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


Tow tractors can be put to use for many applications inside a manufacturing operation, from lightweight parts picking to moving heavy loads like steel bar stock.

Airport Ground Support Equipment (GSE)

Most people are familiar with the site of luggage carts being towed from the tarmac to the terminal. Tow tractors engineered for airport use are responsible for hauling these carts.
