What is a Tractor-Trailer?

Tractor-Trailers consist of two main components: the tractor, which is the front portion, and the trailer, which is the rear portion. In addition, a chassis is a uniquely designed trailer that carries shipping containers from an ocean port to their final destination. The term refers to the chassis as the trailer and the truck as the tractor.

Tractor-Trailers are a critical asset in the logistics and transportation sector, serving as the primary mode of transportation for a wide range of goods across the country.
