Articulated Trailer Tankers carry a lot of water with them and can haul a great deal of weight as well. The weight that they can carry depends upon the size of the semi-trailer that is being used. Still, it can be as high as a tonne or even more than a tonne, depending upon the type of vehicle being towed, and even upon the kind of water that needs to be transported.
Articulated water tankers, trailer tankers, and tank barges are all interchangeable terms used to describe the same type of vehicle. The most commonly used term, however, is semi-trailer. Other descriptions use flatbed, four-wheel drive, front end loader, jogger, pick up truck, plow, self-propelled, sloop, towbar, and tilt tankers. Each of these terms refers to the specific type of semi-trailer that is being towed. There are also various kinds of fuel that the semi-trailer will handle, such as diesel, gasoline, or even biogas.
