Tires for Terminal Tractors

Find your tire


Terminal tractors, or shunt trucks, are true workhorses of harbors and terminals. In their fast-paced work, ergonomics and maneuverability are important for both efficiency and work safety. Terminal tractor tires are an important link in the logistics chain – keeping up the constant flow of goods no matter the weather.

A terminal tractor is a highly specialized vehicle, with all aspects of the design serving the purpose of moving semi-trailers quickly, safely and efficiently. The terminal tractor tires must support this purpose as well. Nokian Tyres HTS Tugger is a terminal tractor tire that is designed with the demands of terminal work in mind.  

Tires for the heaviest loads

Terminal tractors are true powerhouses of the harbor and come in several sizes, all the way up to mega- and jumbo-sized carrying beasts. That’s why terminal tractors need tires with good load-bearing capacity in a compact, low-profile size. The Nokian Tyres HTS Tugger tires can accommodate even the heaviest terminal tractors. 

Maneuverability and predictability

Maximum throughput without compromising safety is the target for terminal work. This requires optimal handling properties and visibility from the terminal tractor. The Nokian Tyres HTS Tugger terminal tire supports your work with its stable, predictable handling.
