Yard Goat Driving Services FAQs
What is a Yard Goat?
A Yard Goat is a semi-tractor that moves trailers and containers within a cargo yard, warehouse facility, or intermodal facility.
A yard truck is built to accommodate a hydraulic lifting fifth wheel allowing the operator to move and lower the trailers without exiting the cab or the need to crank any landing gear. A yard goat can normally move three units in the same amount of time that a standard tractor would move one unit.
What is a Yard Goat Driver?
An EXE Yard Goat Driver is extensively trained not only to operate the Yard Goat, but also for safety around the receiving yard. With a 360 degree view inside the Yard Goat, the Driver has a full view of their surroundings and makes the receiving yard more efficient.
Why not just let a rig move the trailer?
Having a rig move the trailer takes about 3 times as long as it does to have a Yard Goat move the trailer.
