A skeleton semi-trailer is a trailer whose axle is placed behind the center of gravity of the vehicle (when the vehicle is evenly loaded) and is equipped with a coupling device that can transmit horizontal and vertical forces to the tractor.
Semi-trailers are generally three-axle semi-trailers, and their types are divided into 11-meter warehouse semi-trailers, 13-meter warehouse semi-trailers, and low-flat semi-trailers. It is a heavy-duty transportation vehicle connected with the semi-trailer head through a tow pin.

Skeleton trailers can be used for timber transportation with appropriate timber bunks (side restraints), off-road suspension and hydraulic ground protection.
These trailers are versatile because the weight of medium-strength or light-duty high-strength steel is only 4000 kg, which means It can bear more load on fewer axles and tires without exceeding the static rollover threshold, thereby reducing fuel waste.
