Spotter truck, shunt truck, jockey truck, terminal tractor – whatever name you use, they all mean the same thing: high performance, and reliability for moving large volume, over short distances, in a short period of time.
Advantages of a Shunt Truck
Shunting is the act of moving trailers around a job site, yard, warehouse, or short distances. Though many operations utilize semi-trucks, shunt trucks are becoming increasingly popular for the following reasons:
- Increased visibility for the operator, reducing risk of accidents on company property
- User-friendly design for better speed and effectiveness in moving trailers from one bay to the next
- Strength and durability for maximized up-time
- Designed to be able to move in relatively small spaces
