Your Chicagoland TICO Pro-Spotter Distributor


About TICO

TICO Pro-Spotters offer the safest and most reliable terminal tractors on the market. As the largest fleet owner and operator in North America, TICO understands first-hand what happens in the real world when their Pro- Spotters leave the production line. And just like you, TICO’s experience has been gained through the real needs of the work place. The TICO Cab is designed for toughness and efficient repair to maximize up-time; all of the internal parts are attached to the floor and not the cab panels. And with dozens of standard features that are only add-on cost options at their competitors, TICO Pro-Spotters keep the products moving more cost-effectively.

Outsource proudly serves as a distributor for all TICO terminal tractor lines. TICO provides a full library of support documents – manuals, technical documents, and specifications – ready to download, training, and a solutions service team that’s only a click or phone call away. When needed, Outsource provides onsite as well as in shop services on TICO terminal tractors. To learn more about TICO, visit their website today or email us at tico@outsourcefleet.com.

Terminal Tractor Purchasing & Leasing

Whether buying or leasing, Outsource is your destination for terminal tractors. While owning remains popular, leasing allows carriers like you to obtain equipment without incurring the upfront costs or credit constraints associated with ownership. Although the economy is improving, capital can still be tight and margins may be thin. Utilizing an operating lease through Outsource featuring a TICO Pro-Spotter allows you to expense the cost of the terminal tractor monthly rather than carry the liability on your balance sheets. That means more credit flexibility so you can put capital elsewhere in your business. With a leased terminal tractor through Outsource, you’ll have the best terminal tractor available.

For more information, email our Sales Manager, Matthew Leffler, or call him today at (708) 910-2400. Together with TICO, Outsource is ready to serve all your terminal tractor needs.
