A semi-trailer truck is a large vehicle that consists of a towing engine (tractor) attached to one or more semi-trailers to carry freight. A semi-trailer does not trail completely behind the towing vehicle, but is attached at a point that is just forward of the rear-most axle of the towing unit. This is done so that a large portion of the weight of the trailer is carried by the prime mover. This arrangement means that both tractor and semi-trailer will have a distinctly different design than a rigid truck and trailer.

A cargo trailer usually has a "tandem" axle pair at the rear, each of which has dual wheels, or eight wheels on the trailer, four per axle. Many trailers are equipped with a movable tandem to allow adjusting the weight distribution. The combination of eight tires on the trailer and ten tires on the tractor is what led to the moniker "eighteen wheeler".
