Frequently Asked Questions

A semi-trailer is a detachable, unmotorised trailer, with the front of the unit having no road wheels, but instead mounted over the rear road wheels of a multi-axled tractor unit. It’s all connected to the tractor unit via the ‘fifth wheel coupling’ which is therefore one of themost important components of the truck. Today, semi-trailers tend to be larger and more manoeuvrable than full trailers (full trailers have their own commercial cargo capacity because they feature a cab), making semis a good choice for carrying heavy or bulky loads and navigating busy roads across the UK and Europe.
