New Generation DAF XFs join bulk tanker fleet

Bulk powder and liquid specialist Abbey Logistics has taken delivery of seven New Generation DAF tractor units as part of its ongoing fleet replenishment programme.

The new XF 450 FTP trucks, as well as four previous generation XFs joining Abbey Logistics’s fleet, continue the long-standing relationship between DAF Trucks and the company, which serves key food producers in the UK and Europe.

The latest XFs vehicles are fitted with the all-new DAF Digital Vision System, replacing the main and wide-angle door mirrors with retractable roof-mounted cameras and in-cab screens.

The system provides outstanding visibility in all weather conditions and provides access to a few additional features, such as auto-panning and an extra-wide-angle view.

They join an existing fleet of around 350 tractor units and nearly 700 purpose-designed tankers.

Dave Patten, Managing Director at Abbey Logistics, said: “Like any fleet operator, economy and efficiency is important, and our DAF trucks have always been able to balance outstanding performance with a competitive miles-per-gallon figure.

“The New Generation XF promises to be a major step-up over the older models, so we’re excited to see the results for ourselves.”
