Explanation: The semi here refers to the fact that the vehicle is what is called a "semi."
It consists of a tractor and a trailer.
The trailer carries various loads. If the load is gasoline or other liquids, then it is a tank trailer, but it is more commonly referred to as a "tanker."
"Tanker" can refer to the entire vehicle.
