Cargo Tugger

Application description: Ideal for handling cargo, packages, baggage and mail carts in areas where aisle space is restricted and limits the use of other material handling equipment such as forklifts or motorized baggage carts. Facilities that could use a cargo tugger would include distribution centers, shipping docks, airports, mail handling centers and ports. Many of these facilities have the larger, more automated equipment to handle the bulk of their cargo, but these are not practical for smaller loads or for cases where size and space would be too restrictive. A cargo tugger provides an economical, flexible and safe method for handling a variety of cargo.
