Trailer Moving System TMS2000+ moving articulated truck

Stop waiting around for a licensed driver

Depots often rely on a combination of shunters, forklift trucks and truck cabs to move empty trailers around the yard.

Requiring licensed, trained drivers for short-distance movements lead to bottlenecks in the movement of trailers from bays to docks, driving many logistics providers to look for more efficient options. 

Streamline the movement of trailers to drive efficiency 

Reducing the reliance on traditional material handling equipment, our articulated trailer movers allow operators to move trailers safely and efficiently.

With no operator license required, a licensed driver is no longer needed for trailer movements in the yard, allowing them to focus on more productive tasks and meet delivery quotas.
