What characterises CLARK's tugger trains & electric tow tractors?

Built to last

As with all CLARK products, the Built to Last principle also applies to our electric tow tractors. This means that they are particularly robust, durable and low-maintenance. Convince yourself of our quality promise and take your company's internal logistics to the next level with modern tugger train logistics.

High ride comfort

The CLARK electric tug offers low driver access, a low-vibration and ergonomic design, an adjustable steering column and generous legroom - all these features ensure outstanding driving comfort, even when driving for long periods of time.

Powerful motors and high tractive forces

Powerful AC drive motors with a rated output of 6 kW and high tractive forces of up to 7 tonnes ensure that our electric tow tractors provide sufficient power for your intralogistics, even over long distances or on inclines. This means that even heavy loads with several trailers can be transported without any problems.

Flexible trailer solution

The CLARK trailers are characterised by their slim and robust design, which makes the tugger train extremely compact. Particularly noteworthy, however, is the excellent directional stability of the tugger train, which is ensured by the electrically controlled wheels in the rear axle module. Each trailer follows the other precisely, both on straight stretches and on bends. This enables efficient and flexible utilisation and ensures that the tugger train can be used even in the tightest of spaces.

Simple coupling and uncoupling

In addition to the standard trailer coupling without remote release, a coupling with remote release is available for coupling and uncoupling the trailers. This allows the towing tractor to automatically couple and uncouple additional trailers: for example, after delivering materials to the destination, it can uncouple the trailers and automatically couple empty trailers waiting there for the next "milk run". The tugger train can therefore be flexibly integrated into other production processes.

Low maintenance and operating costs

With tugger train solutions from CLARK, you achieve maximum efficiency and a low total cost of ownership. Powerful AC traction motors with a long service life, low-wear components, the use of high-quality materials and a robust design - all this ensures that our electric tugs are economical to maintain.

FAQ - Frequently asked questions about our tugger trains

  • What are tugger trains?

    What are tugger trains?

    Tugger trains are efficient transport systems for synchronised material supply and are therefore an important component of value-added and customer-oriented production logistics. The tugger train consists of a towing vehicle, for example an electric tractor, and one or more trailers. Tugger train logistics enables several load carriers to be transported simultaneously, which significantly optimises logistics processes and reduces the number of journeys compared to individual transports. The modularity and flexibility of tugger trains allow customised adaptation to specific operational requirements without compromising the clarity and safety of the material flow.

  • Where are tugger trains used?

    Where are tugger trains used?

    Tugger trains are primarily used in intralogistics in a wide range of industries, where they play a central role in optimising material transport. Typical areas of application include production and assembly halls, warehouses and distribution centres as well as airports, shipyards and railway stations. Modern tugger trains with SE tyres (superelastic tyres) can be used both indoors and outdoors.

    In production environments, they facilitate the just-in-time (JiT) and just-in-sequence (JiS) delivery of components to the assembly lines. Tugger trains are used in milk run logistics in particular. This is a delivery method in which a truck picks up loads from different suppliers in order to combine them into one load and transport them. In distribution centres, tugger train logistics improves the efficiency of order picking and goods transport. At railway stations or airports, tugger trains ensure fast and efficient loading and unloading of luggage and freight, and in the automotive industry they supply the production line with various vendor parts.
