Abbey Logistics has taken delivery of seven new generation DAF XF 450 FTP tractor units as part of its ongoing fleet replacement programme.
The new tankers continue the long-standing relationship between DAF Trucks and Abbey Logistics.
Also joining the fleet are four previous generation DAF XF truck which we are very familiar with and are extremely popular with our driver team.
Dave Patten, Abbey’s managing director, said: “A successful fleet truck is one that our drivers will take great pride in operating. It needs to be safe, comfortable and spec’d to a high standard with the right equipment and facilities a driver would need when out on the road.
“We believe the next-generation DAF XF trucks are some of the highest quality vehicles on the market today, so we are pleased to be amongst the first UK operators to add them to our fleet.”
The new DAF XF trucks are fitted with the all-new DAF Digital Vision System, which replaces 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.
