What Is A Tow Tractor?

A tow tractor, sometimes called a “tugger” is a vehicle built to tow products 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 huge variety of capacities and designs. These vehicles are usually configured to tow carts behind them, and are equipped with tow hitches for this purpose.

How Are Tow Tractors Used?

Tow tractors have a wide range of applications across different types of businesses. From light duty to heavy industrial applications, tow tractors are a good fit for many operations.


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

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


Tuggers can be utilized for many applications inside a manufacturing operation, from lightweight 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. These carts are transported by tow tractors that are designed for airport applications.
