These trucks all provide a single-person cab and are not meant for transport on the open road as their top speed only reaches 25 miles per hour. A spotter truck can help transport cargo around a facility and while they are small, they are comparable to a tug boat in terms of power.
Yard trucks are very much a specialized type of vehicle meant to carry different cargo in enclosed containers or even move steel around in the open. While at a port, these yard trucks can haul shipping containers across the facility with ease. These trucks have excellent maneuverability thanks to their short wheelbase while their flat-sided cabin allows for almost a complete 360-degree viewing angle. These trucks act much like the backbone of any operation as their sole purpose is to load and unload goods all day. The process of getting goods shipped would take significantly longer without the use of spotter trucks.
These terminal tractors are capable of hauling just about anything whether in a port, yard or facility.
