What is a yard truck? What is a terminal tractor?

One unit, multiple names and multi purpose.

A yard truck is a heavy duty truck that moves trailers in and around freight yards or ports at rates of up to 5 times faster than conventional methods. The yard truck enables a skilled driver to move trailers without having to exit the cab or crank the landing gear. Once the trailer has been moved to its destination, the driver can lower the trailer back onto the ground and uncouple the fifth wheel without leaving the truck. This is all thanks to the trucks innovative hydraulic lifting fifth wheel.
