DAF LF, DAF CF and DAF Trucks rewarded by UK transport industry
DAF Trucks lands three prestigious prizes at the 2016 Commercial Fleet Awards gala. DAF Trucks was proclaimed ‘Truck Fleet Manufacturer of the Year’, the DAF LF series took home the title ‘Best Urban Delivery Truck’ and the DAF CF series won the ‘Best Distribution truck’ award. This will be the second successive year that DAF Trucks has left the Commercial Fleet Award gala with an award for the LF series and the title ‘Truck Fleet Manufacturer of the Year’.
The 2016 Commercial Fleet Awards gala was held at the Hilton Metropole Hotel in Birmingham. "These awards are extremely valuable to us because the prizes are awarded by a jury of authoritative British vehicle fleet managers with an in-depth understanding of the sector's needs", said Richard Zink, Director of Marketing & Sales and member of the Board of Management of DAF Trucks NV. "The awards emphasize the high quality of both our vehicles and our services. Together we contribute to the lowest total cost of ownership and the highest transport efficiency for our clients who consequently reap the benefits every day. DAF has not been the market leader in the United Kingdom for more than 20 years for nothing."
To explain why it had awarded DAF Trucks with the title of ‘Truck Fleet Manufacturer of the Year’, the jury said: “Whether we look at the quality of the trucks or the unparalleled DAF ITS roadside assistance for those en route, DAF covers all of the professional vehicle park operator's needs. Its dealer network also does its absolute best to support its clients as well as possible. DAF is the benchmark for the truck industry.”
The DAF XF series had already collected the titles of ‘Fleet Truck of the Year’ and ‘Master Truck of the Year’ in the United Kingdom and Poland recently, whereas the CF was acclaimed the ‘Best Distribution Truck’ in the Irish 'Truck of the Year' election.
The Commercial Fleet Awards is an initiative of the authoritative British magazine 'Commercial Fleet'.
