Defining Axel - The Freight Dictionary

Axel Definition

An axle is a structural component that supports a wheel or set of wheels and connects brakes and suspension.

Axles have been used for thousands of years to transport goods and people.

Early axles didn’t have a drive or power unit, but with the invention of the steam engine, drive axles were developed.

These new axles propel vehicles forward or backward while bearing the vehicle’s weight.
