Abbey Logistics’ fleet replacement programme has resulted in seven New Generation DAF XFs being delivered to serve key food producers in the UK and Europe.
The 450 FTP tractor units continue Abbey’s long-standing relationship with DAF and are also joined by four previous generation DAF XFs.
Abbey MD Dave Patten said DAF had proven itself to be “reliable, trustworthy and dependable” manufacturer:
“A successful fleet truck is one that our drivers will take great pride in operating,” he said. “It needs to be safe, comfortable and spec’d to a high standard with the right equipment and facilities a driver would need when out on the road.
“We believe that DAF’s new generation trucks are some of the highest quality vehicles on the market today, so we are pleased to be amongst the first UK operators to add them to our fleet.”
The new XFs - shortlisted for the MT Fleet TRuck of the Year award - are fitted with the new DAF digital vision system, replacing the main and wide-angle door mirrors with retractable roof-mounted cameras and in-cab screens.
