What is a B-double in Australia?

a white B double truck

A B-Double means a prime mover towing a lead trailer with a fifth wheel that is mounted on the back towing another semi-trailer, making two points of articulation. In Australia, container ports may also have super B-doubles – a quad-axle lead trainer with tri or a quad rear axle set. This type of transport is difficult to use in narrow streets and is generally restricted to certain areas for the terminal-to-terminal, wharf to container park, or wharf to wharf travel. Due to their heavy loads, the rear axles on each trailer may pivot while turning to avoid scrubbing out the tire’s edges.

Commercial motor vehicle insurance specifies truck definitions like B double, to provide a better understanding of motor vehicle types and exclusions applicable to articulated truck driving. These definitions will also apply to other types of cover your business requires such as motor fleet insurance, general liability insurance, and cargo insurance.

Transport operators require industry-specific insurance products to manage their risks and prevent losses. Owner/operators of small to medium-sized businesses, manufacturers, and logistic companies of general freight must have comprehensive coverage for heavy vehicle insurance.
