New DAF XFItalian component manufacturer, Bifrangi UK, has ordered a brand new FTT DAF XF 480 from Ford & Slater. The new XF truck replaces an older vehicle coming to the end of its service, which is being used to transport parts both home and abroad.

Officially launched at the CV Show 2017, the New DAF CF and XF trucks are the latest in truck innovation, offering new drivelines and engine capabilities, aerodynamic optimizations resulting in up to 7% lower fuel consumption and a lower weight for increased payload.

With long distance deliveries part of Bifrangi UK’s everyday business, Administration Manager, Andrew Webster, wanted a truck which could provide substantial fuel and efficiency savings.

Andrew Webster explains, “We needed to ensure that when our drivers are delivering parts across Europe, the fuel costs do not exceed our profits. DAF are known worldwide for their efficiency and a promise of up to 7% less fuel consumption for the new trucks is ideal for our business, and an important reason for our decision.”

The brand new XF, fitted with Super Space cab and hydraulic tipping equipment, will also make use of Ford & Slater’s full routine servicing and maintenance package.

Andrew Webster concludes, “We are delighted with the service received from Ford & Slater. We look forward to the arrival of our new truck and can’t wait to see it in action.”
