Truck News published a great article with some solid advice on how to select your next Shunt Truck.  

Shunt trucks have evolved. You can now spec a shunt truck precisely to match your business needs or for your drivers. Predictive maintenance is another area that is gaining prominence. More businesses are looking for telematics integration to gain a better understanding of fleet performance and analytics that help them optimize their operations.

Truck News spoke with several Terminal truck dealers and experts to better understand what a buyer needs to look for when they are thinking of selecting a new terminal tractor for their business.

It appears more customers are leaning towards leasing a shunt truck.  Here is a quote from the article:

It really depends on the application of the vehicle,” said Michael Kirby, V.P. of Sales and Operation for Capacity of Ontario. “But we find a lot of private motor fleets lease these trucks because it puts all the onus on the dealer.”

In other words, the fleet managers and owners don’t want to own the shunt trucks. Seems like the preference is for the dealers to own and maintain the terminal tractors.


At Capacity of Ontario we offer a full line of new and used terminal tractors. We also offer flexible purchase, lease and rental options. We have new and used shunt trucks in stock.
