What are semi-trailers?

A semi-trailer is a type of trailer without its own front axle. Instead, a significant portion of its weight is supported by a tractor or the rear of a truck tractor when attached. This design allows it to be drawn by a motor vehicle.

What is a longer semi-trailer (LST)?

Longer semi-trailers (LSTs) in the UK are a specialized type of heavy goods vehicle (HGV) trailer. These trailers are distinct in their length, being up to 2.05 metres longer than the standard vehicles commonly used on British roads. This makes an LST about 15.65 metres in length, compared to the 13.6 metres length of a standard semi-trailer. The extended length offers significant advantages. They can carry approximately 15% more capacity than their standard-length counterparts. This increase in capacity makes them particularly well-suited for light and medium freight operators, as it allows for the transportation of more goods in a single journey. Consequently, the use of LSTs can lead to fewer trips, which in turn can reduce delivery frequency, cut down fuel costs, and lower CO2 emissions.
