Daf CF

Cemex has signed a deal with Daf for the supply of 40 CF tractor units.

Some 18 of the 460hp 6x2 tractors (an unliveried example of which pictured) have already been supplied to Cemex’s Rugby-based cement operations, with the rest due before April.

They will maintained on a seven-year Daf MultiSupport R&M package through Daf's dealership Ford & Slater.

Paul Clarke, Cemex logistics fleet engineering manager, said: “We enjoy an excellent relationship with Daf and its dealer, but that doesn’t mean Daf is an automatic choice when we look at new vehicle acquisitions.

“For new fleet purchases, we go to the market with a formal tender process after which we scrutinise whole life costs – and that extends to seven years. Invariably, Daf Trucks comes up with the goods and the Daf UK-network provides an excellent fit for our own country-wide locations.”
