Terminal Tractors

What Is a Terminal Tractor Used For?

A terminal tractor goes by many names. Whether you call it a trailer spotter or a yard goat, HTX Material Handling provides customers with industry-leading brands. Terminal tractors are made to move semi-trailers within cargo yards, ports, intermodal distribution facilities, or any large yard. The main functionality of a terminal tractor is to maintain a smooth trailer unloading process within the yard or terminal. While they’re often referred to as “yard goats,” they’re actually more like workhorses—these uniquely specialized pieces of equipment have several heavy-duty features.
