Introduction in the Middle East of the “shunting process”
using 100% Electric and autonomous yard trucks
The shunting process uses a specific vehicle (yard truck) to
move a designated trailer to and from a predetermined location
within the yard.
The road truck decouples the tractor in the staging area from
the trailer and leaves the logistics center to start another
mission. The trailer is then collected by the yard truck and
transferred at the quay at the right time providing asset
optimization and efficiency.
Within easy reach of Hamad Port and Hamad International Airport,
the GWC Al Wukair Logistics Park fosters a 1.5 million square meter
park dedicated to logistics and light industry infrastructure
needed for the success of micro, small, medium, and large
enterprises alike. With every type of warehousing, workshops, and
showrooms available, as well as access to GWC’s full range of
supply chain solutions.
ATM38T is the only native electric tractor of the market
deployed at more than 45 different sites in Europe.
Build from a blank page with the largest logistic and industrial
companies, the ATM provides better TCO than diesel and
diesel-converted-to-electric tractors thanks to its specific design
allowing simplified and reduced maintenance compared to traditional
The ATM integrates industry exclusive ergonomics and safety
features. The proven battery swapping system allows continuous
operations without immobilization of the vehicle for charging
