Terminal Tractor Safety SS17038AS (8 Min.) Spanish
The Terminal Tractor (also known as a shunt truck, spotter truck, spotting tractor, yard truck, yard shifter, yard dog, yard goat, yard horse, yard bird, yard jockey, hostler, or mule) is a semi-tractor intended to move semi trailers within a cargo yard, warehouse facility, or intermodal facility, much like a switcher locomotive is used to position railcars. Operators are required to inspect equipment, communicating with dispatch, log all trailer moves, completing manifests and paperwork, and above all, focus on safety at all times. That’s just what this video is all about.
