These five things describe me:

  1. Quintessential to freight
  2. Up there
  3. Eighteen rubber circles
  4. Everyone knows me
  5. Need considerable distance to stop

What am I?

Hint 1:

I am a vehicle

Hint 2:

The "QUEEN" part is another hint and is significant to the answer.

Hint 3:

If I had "asked" this question in another particular SE community, they would know the answer right away.

You're probably

Boeing 747

because

  • the OP appears to be an active user of

    Aviation

  • according to Wikipedia you're sometimes referred to as

    Queen of the Skies

  • you have 18

    wheels

You are a

Boeing 747 jetliner

Because...

1. Quintessential to freight - FedEx has their own fleet!
2. Up there - Up in the air
3. Eighteen rubber circles - Landing gear has 18 wheels
4. Everyone knows me - Ask an amateur about a plane model, they will likely say "747"
5. Need considerable distance to stop - Like, a whole airstrip worth of space!

Bonus: Also known as...

The Queen of the Skies

Bonus 2: There is...

An Aviation SE.

  • $\begingroup$ For #1 FedEx used to have a fleet. But that is not that much of a matter. $\endgroup$ Mar 7, 2016 at 21:36
  • $\begingroup$ I'm from around Indianapolis. Driving to the -ahem- transportation hub of said vehicle, you can see tons of them. $\endgroup$ Mar 7, 2016 at 21:44
  • $\begingroup$ Hmm, you might be confusing them with the MD-11 or DC-10. The one that FedEx had are already out of the fleet for some years. $\endgroup$ Mar 7, 2016 at 21:49

2 answers seem possible, either:

crown or royal 18 wheelers

another possibility is:

bicycle

because:

people deliver things on bikes... Queen song... another SE is on bicycles... etc... but 18 circles doesnt quite fit.
