MT Awards - Fleet Truck of the Year 2016
DAF, with the XF tractor unit, was once again on the winners rostrum at the Motor Transport Awards winning the prestigious Fleet Truck of the Year. This being the 17th time a DAF vehicle has won the 'Fleet Truck of the Year' award.
In a "very close contest" the XF edged out the Mercedes-Benz Actros and Volvo FH. “The DAF was ultimately victorious due to a combination of proven fuel efficiency, productivity and top class manufacturer and dealer support.” One MT judge commented: “The support from DAF is absolutely first class. DAFaid is the benchmark for roadside assistance and the whole organisation is completely focused on maximising vehicle uptime. Any technical issues are tackled head-on. As an operator that gives you great confidence.”
The judging panel “complimented DAF on its constant evolution of the XF range”. One major fleet operator told MT: “Fuel efficiency is a major strong point. It’s consistently our top fleet performer. DAF has ensured the cab has continually evolved and there’s plenty of space inside for the drivers.”
