The tenderloin is a part of the beef's loin, which is located roughly at the lower back of the animal.
If you imagine the torso of a cow you will see the following primal cuts from left to right:
Upper half: Ribs, Loin, Sirloin (the ribs being the larger part of the upper torso)
Lower Half: Brisket, Plate, Flank
