“While we will no longer be selling TICO terminal tractors exclusively, Turbo will continue our longtime relationship with TICO in purchasing their top-of-the-line equipment for our leasing customers,” said Chris Smith, Turbo’s chief operating officer.

For the past eight years as a dealer, Turbo sold TICO terminal tractors through a separate sister company, Turbo Truck Center.

“We will be forever grateful to TICO for helping us get started in this business,” Smith said. “That is why our decision comes with mixed emotions. But it is necessary in our evolution to meet the growing demands of our customers and not be limited to one manufacturer’s brand or production capacity.”

Jim Grooms, president of TICO Manufacturing, expressed support for the decision, which signifies Turbo’s commitment to meeting evolving customer demands and embracing a diverse range of top-of-the-line equipment. “We are extremely excited for Turbo and this “next chapter” in the evolution of its business,” Grooms said.

Turbo Terminal Tractors, based in Gainesville, Ga., leases one of the nation’s largest inventories of terminal tractors for operations based at warehouses, distribution centers, and ports. For more information, visit https://turboterminaltractors.com or call 844-468-8726.
