Container Semi-Trailers: everything you want to know

For example, they can be called tractor-trailers, 18-wheel vehicles, or just trucks. This blog answers all basic questions about semi-orbits. Whether you are a curious adult or an adult with curious children, we need to answer all your half-track questions.


Here is the content list:

  •  Why do they call it a Container Semi-Trailer?

  • How can Container Semi-Trailers be divided?

  • Different types of sleepers


Why do they call it a Container Semi-Trailer?

It is a bit wrong to call a truck a Container Semi-Trailer. The term originally referred to trailers. The trailer is not technically a trailer because it does not have a set of front wheels. So they are called Container Semi-Trailers. Over time, people began to call trucks and trailers a combination of semi-finished products, and then just called trucks.

They have many other common names. 18-Wheeler is one of the most popular wheels. It refers to the 18 wheels usually present in Container Semi-Trailers. A tractor-trailer is another term you often hear. All of these names refer to a combination of truck and trailer, but the most common are only related to the truck part.

How can Container Semi-Trailers be divided?

Container Semi-Trailers can be divided into two categories: sleepers and day taxis. Sleepers are used for long-distance trucks because they have a bedroom compartment behind the truck. With only a single bed and some storage space, sleepers can be quite basic. Or, you can have two beds, a mini-fridge and microwave, a TV and surround sound, etc., and become very fashionable. This may sound like a daunting task for a Container Semi-Trailer, but the driver can live in the truck for more than a week and go out just to take a break in the bathroom and fill up the gas tank.

The day cab is an l Container Semi-Trailer with no sleeping area. When the driver returns home from getting off work, these trucks are used for short-distance transportation. We often see day taxis in distribution centers, ports, and even airports. In places where large packages are delivered, day taxis are often seen.

Different types of sleepers

You can use high-top, mid-top, or Container Semi-Trailers. High-roof trucks have as high a roof as possible, so the driver has enough space to stand up. The interior height of a high-roof truck can exceed 8 feet. The interior of a mid-top truck is usually about 6 feet 9 inches. The interior of the Container Semi-Trailer is approximately 5 feet high. These functions determine the driver's comfort on the truck, as well as what he can pull on the truck and where he can go. The lowness of roads such as bridges and tunnels means that tall vehicles cannot pass through certain roads.

The answer largely depends on the make and model of the Container Semi-Trailer and the engine of the truck. A day taxi (without a bed) generally weighs about 15 to 16,000 pounds, which is about the same weight as two adult Asian elephants. A small sleeper (flat roof) will cost about £1,000 more. It's like putting a polar bear on those elephants. Large sleepers weigh more than 18,000 pounds.
