Global Terminal Tractor Market to Grow at a CAGR of 4.1% During 2024-2032, Driven by Rising Investment in the Development Of Ports

Global Terminal Tractor Market

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Terminal Tractor Market Report and Forecast 2024-2032’, the market attained a value of about USD 783.46 million in 2023. The market is assessed to grow at a CAGR of 4.1% in the forecast period of 2024-2032 to reach a value of around USD 1124.79 million by 2032.

North America accounts for a substantial portion of the market share. In the US, semi-trailers and cargo containers are moved over short distances using terminal tractors, sometimes referred to as yard or shunt trucks. The increased logistics activities also fuel the terminal tractor market demand.


The flexibility and agility of terminal tractors add to the overall effectiveness of warehouse operations. Compared to a traditional road truck, they can move three or four times as much freight in a single shift, and they boast time-saving specialised features like sliding doors. In addition, factors like the expansion of the e-commerce sector and the increasing adoption of automated warehouse management solutions are positively influencing the market growth.


With the growing trend of sustainability, key players are developing innovative electric terminal tractors that boast reduced noise, vibrations, and fumes, are safe for use outdoors and indoors, and minimise maintenance costs and time. For instance, in December 2021, Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) launched a PowerDriveTM 8000 system to enhance the accessibility of battery electric terminal tractors.


Besides, increasing merger and acquisition activities by key players are also propelling the market growth. For instance, in August 2023, Kalmar signed an agreement with Lonestar Specialty Vehicles (LSV) to acquire the product rights of its electric terminal tractor product line. Through the acquisition, the former aims to meet the growing demand for eco-friendly material handling solutions and expand its portfolio of electric vehicles.
