“We’re standing shoulder-to-shoulder with operators by introducing our DAF Transport Efficiency programme,” said DAF Trucks Managing Director Ray Ashworth.“DAF Transport Efficiency is a network-wide agenda that extends to our service offering too, in a way that brings our customers’ operating costs into sharp focus.
“These product developments to an already very attractive truck range,” he said,“have the potential to deliver considerable savings at the point where they can be truly maximised – and that’s from the driver’s seat.

“DAF Transport Efficiency brings us even greater levels of safety, too.” he added, “We must never forget our obligation to make road transport increasingly safe, for drivers and vulnerable road users, and our latest developments offer enhanced protection for both.”
“Under the surface,” continued Ashworth,“ our Euro-6 product offering is bristling with state-of-the-art technology designed to deliver maximum productivity and reliability. Step back, however, and we see the sum of its parts; a stunning truck range engineered to exacting design principles.
“For our customers today,” he said,“we’ve created possibly the most highly desirable trucks on the market, brimming with driver appeal and built to the highest quality standards. 2015’s DAF truck is a highly prized asset for both the Transport Office and the driver. The DAF badge, I believe, has become the one that the image-conscious operator wants to see on the front grille.”
